HelpBerkeley: COVID-19

Please volunteer to drive by posting here

Hi @Erica, Welcome to Help Berkeley!.

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

Below is a link to a helpful post for new drivers to ramp up and learn more. If you have any questions, there are also FAQ’s in the driver subcats, or you can create a new post.

The next step is to tell us when your schedule fits to drive, and how often you can drive. I’ll tag you in the driver availability thread, and you can see how to do that there.

As far as driving during daylight hours go, deliveries every day happen at about 6:00 pm -7:30 pm.

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

I can drive every afternoon.

Deliveries every day happen at about 5:30 pm -7:30 pm: are these times good for you?

Hi there,

Myself and my partner Zackary would like to volunteer to deliver meals! We are available Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday after 5pm, and and pretty much anytime Thursday-Sunday (a little bit variable).

Please let us know how we can help. Thanks so much for putting this together!

Would you like us to schedule you and your partner as if it were one person, or to schedule you to drive separately? Really, the only difference would be that some nights you may both be scheduled for a delivery.

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

Hi - interested in finding out more about driving.

Hi! Thank you so much for organizing this community. I’m only in Berkeley until the end of the month, but I would be happy to deliver meals during the two remaining weeks I have. I live in North Berkeley, so if there is a need, please let me know and thank you so much.

Hi @andygaines, welcome to the site!

The easiest way to give you more info about driving is to classify you as a driver on the site. As a driver, you can see the drivers-only subcategories (subcats). Take a look at the new information available, and let me know if you still would like to be a driver :slight_smile: .

This is great! My partner and I would like to volunteer to drive and deliver meals. Evening and weekend hours are best, but some daytime hours may be ok as well.

Hi @RachelA,

thanks for volunteering with us, welcome to the community!

We changed the process for volunteering yesterday, so I am really sorry you fell through the cracks yesterday: dispatchers had not adjusted to the new process where volunteers can now do so directly from registration. I have made you a driver, so now you can access the driver-only subcategories (subcats) on the website: check the /drivers/ category!

You asked about shifts: we drive late afternoon early evenings, leaving around 5:30pm, although there are (rare) exceptions.

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

Thank you!!!
