Did you know that Store To Door serves seniors all across the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area?
We shop and deliver groceries out of six stores located in Bloomington, Crystal, Maplewood, St. Anthony, St. Paul Midway and Chanhassen. Our routes reach seniors in all corners of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington counties.
Volunteers Can Span the Country
Our volunteer shoppers live throughout the region, too. But our volunteer order takers can work from many miles away.
“Some of our order takers are snow-birds who make phone calls from their winter homes in Arizona,” says Carolyn Swenson, volunteer program supervisor. “Others are long-distance caregivers who want to give something back to the area where their elderly parents live.
“All the volunteer order takers enjoy talking to their clients every other week, entering each one’s grocery list into our online ordering system,” she adds.
Volunteer Order Takers Needed
Store To Door serves about 1,800 seniors each year. That number is limited, though, by a lack of volunteer orders. “Order takers give just an hour or two a week, calling from their home or office at a time that’s convenient for them,” explains Carolyn. “I’m happy to talk with anyone who thinks they might enjoy this easy way to help out some local seniors.”
