Route Pick-Up Delivery Dates and Times:
JRA's clients depend on volunteers to deliver food to their homes. JRA has initiated safety protocols and procedures surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic and has implemented a drive-thru model called Express Pick-Up for all deliveries and a Knock, Drop and Go policy at recipient homes. If you are interested in delivering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We understand that situations change, and kindly request that if you are no longer able to deliver your assigned route, that you contact us ASAP so we can reassign it to another interested volunteer.
If you have any symptoms or believe you have come into contact with COVID-19, please do not volunteer to deliver.
If you have a route reserved, please follow these instructions:
In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented a number of measures to reduce the risk to both our recipients and our volunteers. We are continuing to monitor the spread of Coronavirus and are actively seeking the support and guidance of experts in public health, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Public Health in the City of Philadelphia. As this situation is constantly changing, we will regularly update this site with the status of our volunteer opportunities.
Important Protocol: If you have any symptoms including fever, cough or shortness of breath, are feeling unwell, or if you have been exposed to someone with symptoms, please do NOT volunteer at this time. We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines from the CDC website. When volunteers enter the JRA warehouse, they will be asked to wash hands, practice social distancing and participate in a short orientation. Children under 18 are not permitted in the warehouse without a guardian.
