Looking for a flexible volunteering opportunity that will connect you to your community with the ease of an app? Look no further than Invisible Hands Deliver!

Here's how it works: Download our new app for iPhone and Android (search 'Invisible Hands' in the App Store or Google Play) and create a volunteer profile including your neighborhood and delivery radius. You can also visit invisiblehandsdeliver.org/volunteer for more information. Once you complete the Delivery Training found in your app profile under Training Modules, you'll be able to see requests in your area to claim deliveries on your own time and most importantly, create some pretty surprising and beautiful friendships with your neighbors. Another upside? The Invisible Hands app is our community hub to virtually meet fellow volunteers, share community happenings and be a part of the ever growing Hands Fam!

Invisible Hands provides free, volunteer powered delivery services from a grocery run for a homebound senior with reimbursement coordinated before the delivery to picking up prescriptions or food at a food bank for a recipient in their own neighborhood. These deliveries are contactless and in accordance with CDC guidelines. Learn more at invisiblehandsdeliver.org!

Mission Statement

We are a community-based non-profit organization comprised of thousands of volunteers delivering groceries, prescriptions, and other necessities to our at-risk neighbors. We’ve completed thousands of contactless deliveries to the elderly, disabled, and immunocompromised, connecting vetted, trained volunteers with our recipients while following CDC guidelines. We keep our communities safe, socially engaged, and well-nourished -- all while physically distancing.

Description

Delivery apps like Postmates help restaurants deliver pizza to late-night partiers, so why can’t an app also help deliver food to the millions of families facing food insecurity every day?

Enter Invisible Hands, a volunteer-powered non-profit that has facilitated thousands of free deliveries to folks in need since the beginning of the pandemic. Its new, first-of-its-kind app matches volunteers with critical delivery requests, from a grocery run for a homebound senior to picking up food at a food bank in their own neighborhood. The new app for iPhone and Android allows Invisible Hands volunteers to claim deliveries on their own time and most importantly, connect with their neighbors to create some pretty surprising and beautiful friendships. Invisible Hands is also powered by remote volunteers who lend their time and talent behind-the-scenes with the Call Center and Dispatch Team to connect recipients to volunteers.
