Here's a link
to the recent Oregonian article about Roosevelt students Terren Gurule and Miguel O'Loughlin, who have created a free grocery delivery service for seniors and our neighbors who have an underlying medical condition that puts them at risk during the pandemic.
- Items will be delivered by Roosevelt High School student volunteers.
- People over the age of 60 and those with underlying medical conditions can call (503) 360-0058 to place an order. The phone line is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week.
- Roosevelt High School Key Club and CBET Club members will take orders and payments over the phone.
- Groceries will be delivered as soon as possible, typically 24-72 hours after placing the order.
- Volunteers will also deliver meals from food pantries within the service area.
- Spanish-speaking volunteers are available.
- The service area covers the neighborhoods of St. Johns, Cathedral Park, Portsmouth, Kenton, University Park, Arbor Lodge and Overlook.
- To qualify, people must either be over the age of 60 or have a serious underlying medical condition that prevents them from safely shopping by themselves.
- Student volunteers will follow all available safety precautions, such as wearing gloves and masks at delivery time.
