Shopping Assistants are needed to assist Schuyler County residents who are unable to shop for themselves. Volunteers will shop at local stores for groceries, personal care items, prescriptions or other items as specified. Skills Required: Reliability, honesty, integrity, ability to stand for periods of time and walk long distances, reaching, bending, working with money (paying and receiving change), effectively communicating with clients with varying levels of function. Volunteers will use their own vehicles, but are able to claim mileage reimbursement by OFA at the County rate (currently 50 cents/mile). A motor vehicle screening is required for this assignment.
Shopping would generally be required on a weekly to bi-weekly basis.
Let me know if this sounds like something you'd like to do!
