Oakland County is excited to offer a brand new, free grocery delivery opportunity for older adults throughout the county.
As COVID-19 numbers increase heading into the winter, and in an effort to help older adults still access the everyday items they need without having to expose themselves to risk unnecessarily, Oakland County partnered with Shipt to provide a one-year membership for unlimited, same-day delivery from a variety of local stores.
Shipt is a service that shops for you and then safely delivers your groceries and household essentials direct to your door. This can include refrigerated foods, pet supplies or simple household essentials that you would normally find at a local grocery store.
This annual membership is being offered free of charge to Oakland County senior residents who are aged 60 or older and offers unlimited, same-day grocery delivery. Please note that you must pay for the items that you order, but delivery will be free of charge with this membership. Free Shipt memberships will be provided on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
This is a limited time offer and you must sign up by December 10, 2020.
CAREGIVERS NOTE: Although the account name and the address for delivery must be in Oakland County, any family member can help a loved one sign up for and manage the Shipt account, arrange orders, and schedule deliveries.
