Students Volunteer to Grab Groceries-to-Go
Groceries-to-Go, a Program Set Up By Age Well Arrowhead, is Gaining in Popularity Across the Northland
DULUTH, Minn. – A program known as Groceries-to-Go run by Age Well Arrowhead is now picking up popularity in Duluth, Hermantown and Proctor.
When the program started, only a handful of senior citizens were signed up to have grocery shopping done for them.
Now, more than 50 participants receive orders weekly.
On Wednesday, Age Well Arrowhead trained in a new group of volunteer shoppers.
Students from Many Rivers Montessori School in Duluth celebrated their August and September birthdays by picking a community service project.
Their teacher lets the class vote every month, picking what they wish to do.
This month’s group chose to celebrate by helping seniors in the community live easier without the stress of getting to the store.
“We thought it would be a lot of fun and it’s nice to help people who can’t get out of their house,” said 5th grader Stella.
“They’re a little too old to get their groceries so we wanted to help them,” said 3rd grader Soren.
Age Well Arrowhead is always looking for more volunteer shoppers.
