The Homebound Grocery Delivery Program Needs Your Help!
The Homebound Grocery Delivery Program is looking for the community’s help to provide a number of items to the clients we serve. The Homebound Grocery Delivery Program uses staff and volunteers each month to deliver a five-day supply of groceries to homebound clients, providing them with food and a much welcome visit.
The Homebound delivery staff and volunteers have created a wish list of items that would be provided to the clients using the program:
- cereal bars
- oatmeal (individual sized packages)
- peanuts or almonds (in bulk, jars or bags)
- fruit juice or iced tea
- apple sauce
- canvas or recycled bags that can be used to delivery the groceries
Special items for February:
- chocolates to be deliverd for valentines day!
If you are interested in donating any of these items please contact Homebound Grocery Delivery Program Coordinator, Alice Anton at 658-7939 ext 25 or email email@example.com.
