HelpBerkeley: COVID-19

MeSi Packer/ Driver

I was trying to register as a volunteer. Not sure where I went wrong.

@MeSi, no big deal at all! You forgot to check the “I want to volunteer” option. Would you like to be a driver, a food packer, or a dispatcher (i…e back office work from home)? Or would you you like us to contact you on the phone to discuss options?

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

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

If you are free on Mondays 12-2:30pm, or 2:30-4:30pm, packing is a perfect choice.
If you are free on Mondays 3-5pm, or any evening 5-7pm, driving is a great choice. Or, of course, you can do both.

Let us know what you prefer right away, and we’ll set you up with either a packing assignment, or driver orientation. There is packing this Monday at 12:00pm or at 2:30pm.

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!

The link to the driver training zooms says private. Also, I see no info on being a packer.

Thanks for reaching out. I think I’ve figured everything out. I can’t make it tomorrow but hope to help pack next week.

Sure thing! That’s great!

I’m not seeing how to volunteer to be a packer.

Thanks very much! We are really looking forward to work with you!

Would you still like to get driver training at this time? Or will you focus on packing?

I’d like to focus on packing.
