When you can’t get to the grocery store, and you would like someone to go for you, or when you want to shop for yourself, but would like a helper to come along Springwell’s Shopping Assistants can give you a hand.
SHOPPING ASSISTANTS FROM SPRINGWELL CAN:
Shopping Assistants are available weekly, bi-weekly, or as you need them.
Springwell Shopping Assistants do not handle more than $40 in cash or use your ATM card, buy alcohol for you, accept payment for their help, or manage your money.
There is no charge to have a Shopping Assistant.
