At the beginning of April when it was evident that help was needed throughout our communities, we quickly assembled an amazing group of volunteers. Team members  receive a list of needed items, shop for them, and then, deliver them.

“In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have developed a shop-and-drop program for grocery or personal-care items for those in emergent need,” Rolfsness said. “At this time, we are giving priority to our elders, people in quarantine, families with children, veterans and those who are experiencing difficulties related to school and job closures.”

The need comes from a variety of issues created by the pandemic, including financial strain. People utilizing the service can also be at high risk for complications from the virus and need help with the shopping so that they quarantined at home.

You can make requests and referrals by calling the HH office at 883-8256 on Mondays & Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Fridays are typically scheduled for drop offs.
