Senior Shopping Support
Cumberland has developed a program to assist our senior neighbors with grocery shopping during the coronavirus pandemic. This will allow older residents to take extra precautions during this time and to not worry about going to the store. It is recommended that volunteers are under the age of 65 due to the high risk that COVID-19 presents to our older population.
If you are interested in volunteering your time on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning, please complete the online application: https://www.cumberlandmaine.com/volunteer
