Someone's sprinklin' water & rose petals

& another millennium has passed
Say Al--is that you?

Elders: Could you use some help with grocery shopping?

Shop Around is a convenient, low cost shuttle that makes it easier to go grocery shopping for seniors over 65 and people with disabilities.  The shuttle takes you and others directly to the store in San Francisco where you like to shop.  You'll have about an hour to shop, and the driver will help carry your groceries on and off the shuttle.  Each one-way trip costs $2.00.  There are certain eligibility requirements.  For more information, call 415-351-7052.
