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.
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.
