Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: VEAP- Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People

Do you enjoy driving? Are you looking for a way to become more connected with your community? In our new response to COVID-19, Volunteer Drivers are needed more than ever to help us keep food on our community’s tables! Our Volunteer Driver opportunity complies with current public health guidelines, doesn’t require experience, and is of course fun! No vehicle necessary, VEAP minivans are available to volunteers during their shifts.

Open Opportunities (Ages 25-76):

  • Deliver prepackaged fresh and shelf-stable foods to seniors, participants with disabilities, as well as community members without transportation.

In this role you will see your impact first hand and gain insight into how food and housing insecurity affects your community.

All volunteers ages 18 and older are required to complete a criminal background check prior to volunteering. Volunteer Drivers are also required to pass a motor vehicle check, have a valid driver's license, and proof of insurance.

Driver shifts are on-site at VEAP and begin every weekday at 9:00 a.m., 1100 a.m., and 2:00 p.m. We also have evening opportunities from 4:30 - 7:00 p.m. on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of every month.

Get started today! Fill out our Volunteer Interest Form at http://veap.org/become-a-volunteer/ or for more information contact our volunteer department at volunteerdept@veap.org or 952.955.8323.
