Shopping Angels have become essential during this pandemic. They are a group of people that help others who cannot help themselves during this challenging and uncertain time.

The Shopping Angels will go to the store, suited up with a mask and gloves, and pick up items for people in need. They shop for those who are up in age, more susceptible to the virus, or those that should not be going out during the pandemic. 

The angels shop for the items, then deliver them at a safe distance to the people in need. AND they do this all for free. Most will not even accept tips. They do it out of the goodness of their heart to help others, they are not looking to turn a profit.

The service was started by a student in Las Vegas and has spread across the nation. In Chicago today, there are over 200 angels that love helping those in need.

The angels come from all walks of life, there are some teachers who have extra time on their hands now that participate or those that go out and shop while taking a break from work, 

The volunteers love doing the work because it uplifts them to see the seniors so grateful and happy when dropping off the groceries. #GoodVibes
