About the Position
Position:
2785 - COVID-19 Community Response Delivery Drivers > IMMEDIATE NEED!
Organization:
Position Address:
Knights Table, 287 Glidden Road, Brampton, Ontario
Location:
Mississauga, Brampton

Goal

The Pandemic, with so many isolated, has been witness to a high demand for Drivers, who engage in a variety of projects designed to assist those in 'isolation', ranging from CONTACTLESS delivery of meals (mainly to seniors) to the pick up/delivery of  Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to those who sorely are in need. As the 'volunteer centre' for Peel region, Volunteer MBC has played a significant part in coordinating volunteers for these worthwhile, vital initiatives. OUR MOST PRESSING, IMMEDIATE NEED at this time is for DELIVERY DRIVERS >>> especially drivers resident in BRAMPTON, who have access to a reliable vehicle, and who can pick up MEALS from a Brampton location (see Map, below), plus PPE from locations yet to be determined, then deliver these to addresses in Brampton. If you can organize your time to reliably accommodate this 'role' (see DESCRIPTION), you'll be making an extremely important contribution to respond to our needs this Summer, in June, July, through August.

Able-bodied seniors, too, are welcome to apply!
