Volunteer Services – Shop By Phone
The purpose of our Shop-by-Phone program is to provide grocery shopping services to residents who are isolated in their homes due to illness, injury or disability.
The ability to order foods that meet dietary and nutritional needs as well as foods that we enjoy allow our isolated community members to live healthier lives. The ability to order directly with a person allows our community to live more socially well lives.
Led by a team of committed volunteers supported by the volunteer services office, clients provide their grocery list by phone on Monday mornings. On Tuesdays, volunteers shop for the groceries at the Save-On-Foods store located at South Point Mall. Volunteers deliver the groceries straight to your door.
“For me it [the Shop by Phone program] has been an essential need. Thank you to all your volunteers. They have made life alone possible for me.” ~ Shop by Phone client
