“I started with the shopping program as it was becoming more challenging for me to do it on my own. I’m independent and with the support of this program can still go out to do my own shopping. Volunteers are kind and considerate.”
We match a select group of students from Ashfield Boys High School with local clients who are independent but require physical help with their grocery shopping.
As well as providing practical assistance, this program promotes inter-generational and cross-cultural interaction and encourages students and older people to make a difference in each other’s lives.
