What is normally a simple task, like grocery shopping or going to the pharmacy, has been turned upside down in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially for seniors who don’t have a support system in place.

In partnership with Publix, Broward’s Sheriff’s Office deputies shopped for one of the most vulnerable populations. The retailer allowed deputies in the store at an earlier time to give them an opportunity to avoid the crowds and secure the items needed. 

Broward’s Sheriff’s Office worked with the Cooper City officials to identify elderly residents in need of this service. Seniors provided a grocery list to deputies, who shopped for the items and delivered them to their home.
