The Portland-area agency Store to Door, which shops for and delivers groceries to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities, was honored at the 2014 Governor's Volunteers Awards program.

In all, 33 individuals and organizations from all over Oregon were recognized at the awards luncheon April 24 in Salem. Store to Door was named outstanding nonprofit volunteer program in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties.

Other regional award recipients from the Portland area included Gigi Lambert (adult volunteer); Rosalie Betschart and Judi Swift (elder volunteers); Phillip Margolin (lifetime achievement); and Portland General Electric (large business volunteer program). Fred Meyer received the statewide award for business volunteer programs.

Store to Door, founded in 1989, serves more than 400 clients and delivers 7,000 grocery orders each year. Its 275 volunteers call homebound seniors and adults with disabilities to take their orders, shop for them and deliver the groceries to them.
