Delivery Day Drivers

This Saturday will be our monthly Delivery Day for the needy seniors in the Senior Citizen Project. 131 seniors will receive their monthly 100 pounds of food and personal care items. Today we wanted to highlight a group of volunteers who help make our deliveries successful each month, our delivery drivers.
Our regular drivers deliver groceries to the same seniors every month. They sign up for a time slot on Saturday morning and our volunteers load up their cars with the nutritious groceries our seniors need to maintain their health. They then deliver straight to the seniors’ homes. When our regulars are unavailable, substitute drivers serve their seniors. Substitute Drivers give HSP their e-mail, so that we can reach them when our regular drivers are unavailable to deliver food for the month. Once we know all the routes that are in need of a driver we send e-mails to the substitute drivers and they choose what time slot and route works best for them.
We would not be able to run this program without the help of the amazing drivers that volunteer their time every month and encourage new people to try it out! If you are interested in becoming a Delivery Day driver or have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us by emailing or by calling 630.221.8340.
