Pantry Delivery Volunteers (Little Neck)
Commonpoint Queens seeks volunteers to help deliver food to needy households across the Borough of Queens. Since the start of the pandemic, our bus drivers have been working tirelessly to complete hundreds of deliveries to needy households each week.
Volunteers are asked to accompany Commonpoint Queens' bus drivers as they travel along their delivery routes. While the bus drivers remain in the bus so as to avoid the need to find parking, volunteers will serve as "runners" and carry the packages off the bus to their destinations.
This promises to be a meaningful and physical opportunity that provides volunteers with the chance to directly impact the lives of hundreds of people across Queens. Volunteers should be comfortable carrying 20 pounds at a time and must possess maturity and empathy.
