HRDC Senior Programs Launches “Shop 4 a Senior”
Bozeman, MONT. – During the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, HRDC Senior Programs will offer assistance with shopping to all seniors. This service helps seniors meet their essential needs by getting their groceries or other items without having to head out themselves.
Using a model similar to an Angel Tree, seniors can contact HRDC to request their essential needs wish list. HRDC then recruits a donor/volunteer to pick up the items. Those items are given to HRDC, who then delivers the items to the seniors. This service is confidential and available to all seniors at no cost. To get assistance, seniors can call 406-587-5444 or visit thehrdc.org and click “Request Support.”
Here is an example of “Shop 4 a Senior”: Irv is a senior who is confined to a wheelchair. Irv was concerned about how he would be able to shop for groceries so he contacted HRDC asking for help. Debi, from HRDC Senior Programs, learned that all Irv needed was toilet paper, whole milk, Cheerios and a roll of paper towels. Debi gathered all the items Irv needed and dropped them safely at his door. Irv is now on HRDC’s weekly call list, where staff will check-in with him during the outbreak.
At this time, and because of concerns with spreading the coronavirus, HRDC is not accepting in-kind donations. Those who would like to make an impact should do so online at thehrdc.org/give-now. For more information about HRDC’s Senior Programs or HRDC’s response to COVID-19, visit at thehrdc.org.
