Two teenage boys in Potamac, Maryland, started delivering groceries to their grandparents to help keep them safe during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Their hard work lead to a delivery service for senior citizens all across the country.
16-year-old Dhruv Pai and 15-year-old Matt Casertano, realized that many other seniors in their community also needed some help, so they started making more deliveries.
In doing so they started to wonder about all senior citizens in the country that also may need some help getting groceries. So they created a group called Teens Helping Seniors and recruited other young people from all over the country to get groceries, medicine and other essential supplies into the homes of those who are at a greater risk of COVID-19.
There are now 14 chapters across the country AND STILL GROWING from the west coast to the east coast. Dhruv and Matt are working with all the volunteers, trying to make sure as many seniors as possible get the help they need.
