MOUNTAIN LAKES — Enterprising Mountain Lakes High School student Alexander Chan saw a need and came up with a plan. He founded @wheresmygroceries2020, a student-run, non-profit volunteer organization that delivers groceries locally to senior citizens and others who are unable to leave their homes during the pandemic.

Alexander Chen, a sophomore at Mountain Lakes High School and organizer of this little program. No matter how small, he wants to show that anyone can make a difference. “Where’s My Groceries” came to Alex when he realized how dangerous the simple task of shopping for groceries was for elderly people. For them to live in a world where shopping could literally kill them? That’s unacceptable. So he set out to change that.

“Shopping should never entail a life or death scenario. By getting their groceries delivered to them, the elderly can breath easy knowing that they don’t have to risk contracting COVID-19 while shopping. It’s amazing how the simple act of delivering groceries could actually save lives, but I’m grateful if I can protect even a single person,” said Chen.
