Grocery Assistance-shopping Program
(GAP)
A project of RSVP in Greene County


What is GAP?

  • GAP is a free service that helps disabled adults of any age and individuals 60 and older who may have difficulty getting groceries from the store to the kitchen.

  • Participation may be short term (temporary illness or recuperation) or long term.

  • Volunteers shop so participants can have fresh produce, dairy products and other items they may not have on a regular basis.

  • No cash exchanges hands, shopping done with grocery gift card.

  • Volunteers provide friendship and support in delivering groceries.

  • Participants may request shopping volunteer stay for a visit when groceries delivered giving them social connectedness. 

  • All volunteers are background checked.


"Danny is as loyal as can be.  Always so friendly and
dependable and always gets my groceries right."
-Janice K.


Make a difference...one person at a time!

 
"GAP is a very rewarding experience in many ways.  To share
such a small amount of your time to help another person is
so worth while.  A friendly smile and a caring attitude can be
the highlight of someone's day or week.
It's a win-win situation for all."
-Edward, GAP Volunteer
