The company says Wednesday, March 25 will be an errand day for seniors in Hoover and Pelham. Seniors in this area can go to dwellathome.com, and in the message box type what errand they need, their phone number and address.

Whether it’s picking up dry cleaning, Chinese food or pre-ordered groceries, we want to help.

Applications will be taken on the website until Tuesday, March 24 at 8 p.m. Errands will take place from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
