Keep an eye out for holiday Postal hiring coming up. It is temporary and maybe will not offer much money, but it will keep you busy.

I notice that large grocery stores seem to have signs up for part-time help on a pretty regular basis. And good luck in your search!

Amazon will hire as long as you have a high school diploma - no interview or anything. You pick the hours ahead of time you want to work each week. My daughter did this when she was home during the summer from college as her camp job with covid was canceled.
I think someone mentioned delivery - on those lines, I was at the auto garage and some guy from one of those auto parts -Auto Zone - or something like that came in. I started chatting with him and he told me he was retired and working parttime delivering for them - so it was just to local garages and such. Said it was a great job for a retiree.
My other daughter worked a while at Panaera - she hated it - but during the week days there were typically older retiree like people working the register - they were the nicest so much more so than those at other times. They took their time and gave suggestions and so forth - I would recommend finding a local type coffee place (they will be much nicer to you than these chains) -
Lowes always seems to need people as well - in shopping there in the garden center, this really nice lady helped out us making suggestions on various flowers and how to care for them. Again she talked about how she does this parttime because she likes to garden.
Is there something you like to do in particular? You may not realize how valuable this knowledge is and how much more pleasant it is to work with someone retired that is just plain old enjoying what they are doing.

If you have some skills, just offering handyman services can be quite lucrative. We have a neighborhood chat group called Nextdoor and there are requests all the time from older couples or single woman living alone who need to have things done, ranging from replacing a faucet to helping clean out their garage.
