HelpBerkeley: COVID-19

PenelopeThompson Driver

Hi @PenelopeThompson, 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!

I signed up to drive, but I think I will not be able to do so. Can you please let me know if I( can do packaging? I need to know that full safety precautions are being taken. I am 83 and in good health, and plan to stay that way. I can also be a dispatcher, with instruction. Penelope Thompson on Dec 23 and 24, any time until 4PM.

Penelope, thank you so much for your generous offers to help us this Holiday season. Unfortunately, we get quite nervous having our more vulnerable members signing on for these hands-on types of opportunities. As much as we will be careful, there is always some risk when a group of people work in some proximity, even will all precautions. If anything happened to you, we could never forgive ourselves. But—I do have another idea that I think could work great! We have a list of congregations we’ll like to contact, to ask them if they want members included, or to send volunteers.

Would you be able to take some of that on? That would be a huge help to us right now.

If you would prefer to discuss over the phone, let me know or give me a call. My name is Leo and I’m at (510)-708-4413.

All the best!
