Volunteer Delivery Drivers Needed
Loaves & Fishes is expanding our home delivery service to two days a week and more drivers are needed. Signing up is easy! Visit our website volunteer calendar to sign up for deliveries and confirm assignments online at https://loavesandfishes.volunteermatrix.com/ . This should bring you to our volunteer calendar. Look for “Delivery Driver” opportunities. Open opportunities are blue, and opportunities in red are full. Opportunities are added each week
If you have not done so already, please register using the “new volunteer registration” button above the calendar. After you register, you will be able to sign up for deliveries based on locations (Uptown, North, South, East, West). Feel free to work in pairs, but only 1 person needs to sign up. Drivers will be assigned 3-5 deliveries for a total of 8-15 boxes, so larger personal vehicles with space are preferred. After you sign up, the automated confirmation email will include instructions on when and where to pick up food boxes. Box pickup day will be Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00 am – 12 noon. Please come to 648-B Griffith Rd. Charlotte, NC 28217 to pick up boxes if you are signed up. Volunteers will be assigned specific deliveries at box pickup on a first come basis.
As a friendly reminder, requirements to make deliveries include:
- Must be able to pick up boxes on specified box pickup day
- Must be able to deliver boxes same day no later than 2 pm.
- Must be healthy and at least 18 years old
- Must have personal vehicle with space for food
- Must be able to lift 25 pounds
Since the delivery program launched in May, Loaves & Fishes has been able to serve over 2,000 of Mecklenburg Co.’s most vulnerable who may have otherwise gone without food. Of those served, more than a quarter were children. Many of these families found themselves between a rock and a hard place, without a way to pick up food from a mobile and no friends or family to pick up for them. With every box delivered another family was fed, and we could not have reached these homes without volunteers like you!
