Genentech will sponsor a week of grocery delivery costs for over 175 homebound seniors and people with disabilities from June 13th – June 17th through Store to Door’s Support-A-Week program. Employees of Genentech will celebrate the week by volunteering to grocery shop for Store to Door clients, along with 20-30 other Portland-area volunteers.
This is Genentech’s second Support-a-Week sponsorship this year, with their first happening in February. Other Support-a-Week sponsors include OnPoint Community Credit Union and First Tech Federal Credit Union.
Store to Door’s Support-A-Week program offers corporations and organizations the opportunity to sponsor the cost of an entire week of grocery delivery to clients. The actual service cost per delivery averages $40, yet, to make it affordable, clients are charged an average of just $3-$6 per delivery.
