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 on the first Wednesday of each month, participants are transported to a local shopping centre by bus, and while accompanied by an OBVS volunteer, can purchase goods, run errands such as banking, or merely window shop with someone who can provide a supportive arm and a listening ear. After an hour of shopping, participants and volunteers meet for an hour of fellowship over light refreshments. This beloved 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.
The Hop Aboard Seniors Shopping Bus Program is delivered in partnership with The Baptist Housing Society.
