Groceries to Go
Alexandria’s seniors continue to receive a grocery delivery every two weeks. Volunteers are paired with a senior who they directly reach out to, ask for a reasonable grocery list, and determine the best day and time to shop for and delivery groceries. On alternating weeks, volunteers are in touch with the senior to check in, ask how they’re doing, etc., and to let the senior know they’ll receive a call the following week to get their grocery list. On grocery delivery days, the volunteers call the senior to let them know their groceries are on their way and that the volunteer will knock on their door upon arrival so they know they can then find their groceries at their front door. We are accepting a limited number of new clients, depending on availability of volunteers. If you are interested in the Grocery program, contact 703.836.4414 ext 119.
