What: Take seniors on an excursion to a neighborhood 99 cent store.
Alexandria Care Center is a skilled nursing facility that provides both short-term rehabilitation to get elderly clients healthy and back home and long-term care for those requiring 24-hour assistance.
Volunteer Project: The elderly clients at Alexandria Care Center don't always have the chance to get out of their rooms very much. To boost their spirits and get some fresh air, they're offered a weekend excursion to the neighborhood 99 Cent Store! Shopping for great deals is one of their monthly highlights! Come provide a much needed shopping trip along with great companionship, lively talk and needed sunshine.
Special Note: Volunteers are asked to help transport seniors to the 99 Cent store by pushing them in wheelchairs approximately 8 blocks round trip. If you feel that you may not physically be able to do this, please email the Project Leader below before signing up to see if alternative arrangements can be made.
Bilingual (Spanish, Armenian, Korean, or Tagalog & English) skills are helpful.
