Hi @Weiwei , welcome and thanks so much for volunteering with HelpBerkeley.org! We would love to work with you. Our dispatchers have made you a dispatcher, and you can now access dispatcher areas on the website.

One of us will call you in the next day or two and discuss dispatching options and training with you, we are very excited to be able to work with you.

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

Hi Wei,

I made you a meal logistics volunteer, so now you can access the meal logistics category on the website.

If you could come help some Sundays, that would be great! Right now, we have only Sundays and Mondays for in person shifts. I am there in the kitchen with Leon most Sundays. I went ahead and added you to the scheduling calendar. 2022 logistics availability (please log in to see)
Please mark available days with Y, and not available days with color red.

Reminders like this will be sent out to the volunteers a few days in advance.

Please let me know, if anything is unclear.
Thank you, Akemi

Hi Akemi,

Thanks for getting back to me!

Do they need help other than Sunday and Mondays? I can do some Sundays, but Mondays are harder with my schedule.

Hi Wei,

Thanks for contacting me and I am glad you signed up!

Sorry I was not following up on your account. It said you heard about Help Berkeley through Next Door and it went to a different dispatcher.

I understand you can help with dispatching which is not in person, working once a week from home, editing a spreadsheet to assign a delivery route to drivers. Does it sound good to you?

We also have three types of volunteer positions in meal logistics—we could use more volunteers in each category (children with their parents are welcome in all shifts):

  • Meal prep: we prep meals on Sundays from 12:30am to 3:30pm (morning and afternoon shifts possible) in a very large hall, with 30-foot ceilings and industrial ventilation, under the supervision of our Chef Alan (we also cook meals 9:30am-12:30pm on Mondays but need fewer volunteers then).
  • Food packing: we pack and clean on Mondays from 11:30am to 2:30pm, in the same place, in a very congenial atmosphere!
  • Pickup management: we prepare driver pickup and load deliveries, outdoors, on Mondays between 1:30pm and 4:00pm.

When and what tasks would work best for you?

Please let me know. Or when would be the good time for you to talk this week?

Thanks so much for your interest!

Hi Akemi,

I signed up for helpberkeley few weeks ago. They send an auto email saying that they will call me next few days, but I still have not heard from them. I also don’t quite understand their website and how they work.
Please advise.

Thank you,
