The latter not only gives the right to move around the city, lost in isolation, but also allows you to save on purchases. Some stores announced a campaign: volunteers who purchase products for pensioners of a discount.

Businesses are becoming increasingly active in the campaign #Myvote. The Petersburg confectionery factory was allocated for pensioners marshmallows. A firm micromobile sharing shared with the volunteers of brand new Segways.

They came just before the beginning of the coronavirus… well, now I have two hundred scooters in circulation, and fifteen thousand stand for. So I did not wish to give their volunteers for a good cause. Of course, I do not like what is happening, and I want to help those who are downtrodden.

One of the additional tests for grandparents, closed in their apartments, was the lack of printed information. Therefore, in the last days by completing an application seniors, I except groceries and medicines, leave them copies of historically popular magazine “Rodina”. They are all individually wrapped, which is especially important now, when the purity within the house of objects is vital.

Volunteer work is difficult, but perhaps even harder to project coordinators, who almost round the clock to process applications, talk on the phone with the elderly, doing reports and very worried about the result. Meanwhile, almost all of them – the students that in addition to this voluntary load remotely needs to learn.
