COVID-19 Volunteer Response

Updated July 8, 2020

Volunteers needed for our Shopping Squad!

This program is providing vital individual shopping support and no-contact delivery to home-bound older people we serve in 19 Brooklyn neighborhoods. We are currently meeting the needs of 80 home-bound older people and making 15 to 20 shopping trips a week…we need more help!
A few important things to know about our Shopping Squad: 
    • Individual Shopping Squad volunteers must be over 18
    • Families can volunteer together as a team long as one member of the team is over 18 and present
    • Volunteers can pick and choose how often they help and in which neighborhoods
    • Car and willingness to shop/deliver to variety of neighborhoods appreciated
    • All shopping assignments are in our Brooklyn service area, see a map here
