Shopping Angels Canada is a community program led by Jaya Manjunath designed to provide shopping services to those populations deemed especially at-risk to contracting the novel COVID-19 virus that is spreading throughout the world. Individuals aged 60+ and those with conditions that impair their immune function are especially vulnerable to contracting this virus.
To help ease the uncertainty, anxiety, and fear surrounding the need to travel outside of your home during this pandemic, we are volunteering our time, at no additional cost, to physically go and pick up groceries or other shopping necessities for those who may prefer to stay within the safety of their own home.
Shopping Angels Canada is a branch of Shopping Angels,(https://shoppingangelsglobal.org/) an organization founded by University of Nevada student Jayde Powell. In addition to a Canadian branch, there are branches of Shopping Angels in all fifty states and Australia with close to 5,000 volunteers.
