Bag For a Cause with Help At Your Door

Help spread the word about Help At Your Door to potential volunteers and clients while bagging items at the grocery store. To celebrate Older Americans Month this May, Help At Your Door will be bagging groceries for customers at Cub Foods locations on Saturday, May 13th and Saturday, May 20th.

Groups of 10-20 volunteers (ages 15 and over, please) are needed to fill morning (9:00 a.m. – noon) or afternoon (noon – 3:00 p.m.) shifts. Locations include Plymouth, Maplewood and Stillwater Cub Foods stores.

Enjoy some quality time and physical activity with your group while assisting seniors and people with disabilities to maintain their independence at home! Let’s amplify the many voices of older Americans in our own community and raise awareness of vital aging issues. Email volunteer@helpatyourdoor.org, or call 651-642-1892 to learn more.

New Volunteer Opportunities

Help At Your Door volunteers, Bill Driscoll and Shirley Shimota, raked leaves for some seniors in our community this fall.

We rely on our volunteers every day as we serve seniors and individuals with disabilities in our Twin Cities community.

With our expanded services, comes additional ways for our volunteers to get involved. From preparing occasional meals, to painting projects and changing light bulbs, volunteers can contribute in a variety of ways.

Here are a few new ways that Help At Your Door volunteers can get involved:

Homemaker
If you enjoy cooking or baking for others, or helping out with a few light household chores like cleaning and organization, our Homemaker Role might be a good fit for you. This volunteer opportunity will allow you to build personal relationships while fulfilling needs in the homes of clients.

Handyperson
Help out with light projects like: interior and exterior painting, hanging pictures, changing light bulbs and smoke detector batteries, and more.

Driver
Help clients who lack transportation to get back and forth safely from their appointments or errands.

Delivery Assistant
Ride with a Help At Your Door delivery person and assist with unloading and unpacking client grocery orders into their kitchens.
