Zoomers to Boomers: Teenagers Create Online Shopping Service For Isolated Seniors

A group of California teenagers have created an online shopping delivery portal to assist senior citizens who are isolating themselves from the coronavirus. After his school closed, Daniel Goldberg found himself sitting around at home, frustrated that there was little to keep him constructively busy. A junior student-athlete at San Marcos High in Santa Barbara, Daniel’s father Dr. Brian Goldberg is an ER doctor at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. I saw my dad going into work at the ER every day and he was putting himself out on the front line,” he said, “I was just sitting at home twiddling my thumbs. I was like: ‘There has to be something I can do to try help out in the community.’ I started thinking and brainstorming on how I can help. That brain-storming resulted in the formation of the Zoomers to Boomers website.
