Hi @MaryM, welcome to HelpBerkeley.org and thanks very much for volunteering!

At this time, we do not have drivers making deliveries in the mornings. Our regular daily deliveries happen starting at 5pm and finishing at 7pm. If you are still interested in volunteering with us regularly, this is when we would likely have you do so :slight_smile:.

However, we do also have special events and circumstances where we need drivers other than during our typical daily run! For example, this past year we had no-cost Thanksgiving and December Holiday meals delivered throughout an entire day (and we delivered 800 and 1,000 meals on those days, respectively)! We are also developing new volunteer opportunities for drivers, and we would be happy to keep you posted should you be interested.

Let us know what you think! You can reach us by replying to this via email, or via the website (go.helpberkeley.org) after logging on. If you would like, we could also arrange a talk over the phone. Can’t wait to hear from you!

All the best,
Leonardo

Hi @MaryM , welcome to HelpBerkeley.org and thanks very much for volunteering!

Our dispatchers have made you a driver, so now you can access the driver-only subcategories (subcats) on the website.

The next driver training sessions, on Zoom, are listed on this thread: https://go.helpberkeley.org/t/new-driver-training-this-week/874. Can you reply to the thread and let us know which session you will attend?

Until then, here is a link to the core information required for drivers to ramp up:

(only clickable by drivers) . Let us know if you have any questions!

Thank you for again for volunteering your time with us, we’re glad to have you on board!
