Opportunity Details

Grocery Program Volunteer

Groceries to Go volunteers shop for and deliver groceries every other week to home-bound seniors who live within the City of Alexandria. You will be paired with a senior, who will provide you with their grocery list. Further instructions (payment and other necessary information) will be provided to you once you've filled out the application, which involves a background check.  The time commitment is at least six months, every other week. This is not a conducive opportunity if you are seeking to fulfill court-mandated hours.

The following are suggested safety protocols.

  • Experienced symptoms that could be related to COVID-19 in the last 7 days (i.e. cough, fever, or any respiratory illness)

  • Been near someone who is sick or if you or anyone in your household have been in close contact with anyone who is confirmed to have COVID-19.

  • PLEASE practice universal infection control precautions

  • Clean and wash your hands before, during, and after volunteering for a minimum of 20 seconds.

  • Avoid physical contact with others and maintain a social distance of 6 feet.
