Volunteer to Translate, Shop/Deliver

Translator/dispatcher duties Instructions:
    Please call the families starting at 8am in the morning to make them aware that their delivery will arrive today and to be ready to receive their order. Shoppers begin shopping around 9am so please make all calls before that time.
    PLEASE remind the families that this is contactless delivery.  In the event that the family does open the door or helps grab groceries, they MUST be wearing MASKS.
    The Shoppers are instructed to text you BEFORE they head out to shop, when they LEAVE the church to go deliver, and when they DROP at the home. 
    **If a family doesn’t answer the shopper has 3 choices, come back later once family answers, knock loudly and then step far away and wait, or just leave it in front of the door and leave. We can’t do much else if a family is not responding.
Call the family when a shopper texts you with a delivery drop. Let the family know that the order was left in front of their door and confirm that the family received the order (say you are with Columbia Community Care)
    Text Erika when all deliveries are complete.
  1. Please sign up at the latest 6pm the evening before you want to shop. 
  • The number of “Spots” you sign up for are the number of families you are willing to “shop” for. 
  • The times listed on the sign up of 8am-9pm are irrelevant. You may shop whenever you choose within the hours that the churches are open. 

2. You will receive all information for the following day’s delivery via  text message to the number you provided when you signed up

  • PLEASE READ the entire text message even if it looks like the same message you always receive.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns! Thank you so much for volunteering to shop and deliver to our families!
