Grey Bears is seeking volunteer drivers interested in driving 1 - 2 mornings a week picking up food donations from local stores. The routes generally consist of 5 - 6 locations to pick up starting at 7:00 A.M. and are completed no later then 12:00 P.M.; they may also require some heavy lifting at times. The ideal candidate will feel comfortable driving a cargo van and/or box truck requiring a class C license only and enjoy working with the public.
