What's the opportunity?
You'll use your own car to make contact-free home deliveries to seniors and people with disabilities in Philadelphia. Volunteers will come to Share's warehouse, receive a list of recipients, get their car loaded, and deliver boxes to recipients' doorsteps.
Whom is my volunteer work helping?
You'll be helping seniors who may not be able to leave their homes safely for food, during COVID-19. Through this program, we make home deliveries to more than 250 recipients every Saturday!
