We are ideally seeking volunteers who are emotionally intuitive, empathetic, and find genuine joy in saying a warm and cheery 'hello' to Elderly.
As a Volunteer Driver, you must:
Be healthy and able-bodied
Have a valid license to drive, own a car (or have access to one), and have active auto insurance
OR you are willing to volunteer as a Passenger Buddy to be paired with a volunteer driver to help with the delivery route
Be available for 3-5 hours on Wednesdays. Dependent on the route you are assigned to, pickup starts between 12:45pm - 1:45pm in the Lower East Side (address to be disclosed after confirmation of your volunteer shift.) We rely on you to show up promptly at your assigned pickup time, thank you!
WHAT QUALITIES DO WE SEEK IN OUR VOLUNTEER DRIVERS?
Many senior citizens we provide Heart of Dinner care packages to are living in isolation and without regular access to culturally thoughtful food. Our mission enables us to directly address the long-standing issues of food insecurity, and the toll that living in cultural, linguistics, and socioeconomic isolation has on the emotional and mental wellbeing.
Many of our Elderly recipients have shared that Wednesdays are the days they most look forward to each week for Heart of Dinner deliveries. As impactful as the nutrients and ingredients that they recognize and love are to their sustenance, they have shared that they are equally heartened by the weekly companionship-- that the personal touch of having Heart of Dinner care packages hand-delivered from volunteers of multi-generational and multicultural backgrounds gives them hope and brings them happiness.
We are deeply grateful to local New Yorkers (and visitors) for your generous time and efforts in enabling our mission to touch the lives of Asian American immigrant seniors living in NYC in ways that are critical. We are equally as grateful to donors, businesses, and partners who champion our cause and make it possible for us to carry out our mission of uplifting the Elderly community.
WHY JOIN US?
NYC's iconic artisanal and hand-crafted confections shop Stick With Me Sweets is most widely recognized for their razor-sharp attention to detail, commitment to integrity and excellence, and dedication to creating quality gifts perfect for cherished loved ones and moments. Founder and Head Chef Susanna Yoon, one of the world’s rare few BIPOC and women chocolatier artist-owners, along with her team of passionate and heart-driven individuals have been ongoing champions of Heart of Dinner since our early formative days and have gifted hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of Stick With Me Sweets treats to Heart of Dinner on-the-grounds volunteers, and even moved work aside to personally deliver care packages to ensure that Heart of Dinner recipients would receive their weekly deliveries. When learning about our ongoing challenges of filling Volunteer Driver shifts, Susanna immediately reached out to ask how she and her team could be of support and the idea of creating a fun game of collecting Stick With Me Sweets x Heart of Dinner Driving Tickets to be redeemed for prizes of bon bon boxes was born!
