Contactless Homebound Deliveries

We welcome people of all ages to volunteer to feed our most vulnerable neighbors by volunteering for a contactless delivery shift. Donate your gas mileage and stay safe from behind the wheel; drop off pre-packaged goods for our homebound or immunocompromised clients. At your volunteer orientation, talk to Erin Lucas, FIND’s Volunteer Programs Manager, to find out more about contactless deliveries.
