GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world (givingtuesday.org).
Shopping Angels began as a grassroots effort to mobilize able-bodied volunteers to help local at-risk communities.
We unexpectedly received an overwhelming amount of support across the globe, and this effort is now a movement of solidarity - bringing together communities to support those who are most vulnerable.
One of the most important things we've learned since the inception of our organization in March 2020 is simple - there is still work to be done.
We are committed to serving people in need for as long as there is a need, and the need is overwhelming. That's why we are participating in GivingTuesday this year and intend to do so every year.
With your support, we can continue our support of communities through and beyond this pandemic. This holiday season, we're raising funds to continue our efforts across the nation. Shopping Angels is proud to be a volunteer-owned and volunteer-operated organization.
Whether you dedicate your contribution to volunteer background checks, individuals and families in need, or supporting the operational cost of our organization (volunteer matching programs, management systems, e-mail subscriptions, etc.) - your donation will contribute to the continuation of our services for those most in need across the country and in your own community.
"Well, I think they're wonderful, kind-hearted people who think of others. As far as I'm concerned, they're first responders in my book."

Mission Statement: Shopping Angels is a program designed to provide services to those populations deemed especially at-risk for the novel COVID-19 virus that is spreading throughout the United States. To help ease the uncertainty, anxiety, and fear surrounding this pandemic, we are volunteering our time to personally deliver groceries or other shopping necessities to those who may prefer to stay within the safety of their own home at no additional cost.
