We are looking for a volunteer to deliver senior food boxes to our neighbors in need. We have found that many seniors in our community aren't visiting food pantries right now, due to concerns regarding Covid-19. NSI aims to deliver once monthly senior food boxes to 30-40 seniors once per month, to help get them through these difficult times.

This opportunity will take place on the last Tuesday of every month. You may sign up to deliver just once, on Tuesday, January 25th, or you can make a monthly commitment. You will use your own vehicle, pick up senior food boxes from the pantry at 1950 N 4th Street, and deliver to the front porch of a list of seniors. You'll use a contactless delivery method to protect both yourself and the senior. Most of the seniors are located in the 43211 area, but deliveries can also include: 43201, 43202, 43210, 43211, 43220, 43221 or 43224.

You must be 18+ and have a valid driver's license and car insurance for this opportunity.
