- WHAT IS SHOPPING ANGELS?
Shopping Angels is a program designed to provide services to those populations deemed especially at-risk for the novel COVID-19 virus that is spreading throughout Canada. In addition to a Canadian branch, there are branches of Shopping Angels in all fifty states and Australia with close to 5,000 volunteers. To help ease the uncertainty, anxiety, and fear surrounding this pandemic, we are looking for volunteers to personally deliver groceries or other shopping necessities to those who may prefer to stay within the safety of their own home at no additional cost.
Shopping Angels is a free delivery service for groceries and other necessities. At this time, we cannot guarantee to provide these items free of charge. Some local branches may receive local donations of items or may establish partnerships with local food banks/pantries and other organizations that provide these items free of charge.
- HOW DOES IT WORK?
Both the volunteer and client fill out the google form to give us information on how close they are to each other, and we give that information to state coordinators.
Volunteer application form: https://forms.gle/YgP35fUELGyrkMzH8
Request of services form: https://forms.gle/8Kf1FwUaw6Zce6gB9
The state coordinator(s) reaches out and asks if a volunteer can help, and then assigns the able and healthy volunteer to a client. The volunteer then receives an email regarding protocol and the client’s address. From here, the volunteer will reach out to the client to coordinate a shopping trip and delivery!
For any questions and concerns, we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
