HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
During the COVID-19 crisis, we are advising all consumers to order groceries online. However, some consumers are unable to utilize online delivery services, and often there are large backlogs to ordering online. MABVI will connect volunteers who are willing and able to grocery shop for consumers.
Available to run a few errands for someone in need? Volunteers will collect funds, purchase groceries, and deliver groceries in a contact-free way.
Families will need to have a car.
To be matched with a consumer, prospective volunteers must:
- Complete an online application and choose from a list of tasks you are willing to help with, (volunteers can choose to help with more than one task)
- Take a virtual training
- Have a brief interview with the Volunteer Department Staff
- Complete this form.
- Select "Family Volunteer"
- Let them know you heard about this opportunity through Project Giving Kids.
- You will be matched based on your location, etc.
- If you have any questions, please contact Alexandra Maggio at email@example.com for Eastern MA (East of Worcester County) or Neejaa Edmonds at firstname.lastname@example.org for Central & Western MA.
