Grocery Deliverer

Organization

Interfaith Volunteer Care Givers of Greater New Haven

Description

This is a low to no contact way of volunteering during this difficult time. You pick up 20 bags of groceries from our staging area in downtown New Haven, between 8:30 and 11 a.m. on a Saturday, and deliver them to 10 stops in the area. We set up the route for you and the typical route takes about 1.5 hours. The clients know the bags are coming, so you ring the bell and leave the bags on the stoop.

Mission Statement

Elderly persons who need help to continue living happily in their own homes have been served by the Interfaith Volunteer Care Givers of Greater New Haven program since 1984. The program brings people in need into supportive relationships with caring volunteers.
