The Hop Aboard Seniors Shopping Bus Program invites OBVS clients and other seniors in the community to join a communal group once a month for a trip to a local shopping centre to enjoy a light walk, purchase much-needed items and connect with other seniors living on their own.
Delivered the first Wednesday of each month, the Hop Aboard program begins with each client being picked up from their home by OBVS staff and volunteers and whisked away on the Baptist Housing Society bus. When all clients have been picked up, the bus will travel to a local shopping centre where clients and a volunteer support will shop and then meet back with the group for a time of fellowship and refreshments.
This program is enjoyed by clients and volunteers alike. If you or your loved one would like to join this valued community, contact our office to find out more.
