To help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, Trip Wright, a 17th-year-old college student in Cincinnati, created the zoomfooddeliver.com organization. The aim was to provide safe and free grocery deliveries to the elder and those who could not get to the stores because they were susceptible to contracting the virus. Within two weeks, Wright had recruited 70 volunteers and had fulfilled 30 orders. Between his online classes, Wright checked emails and orders so as to correspond between those in need and the volunteers.
The elderly and those susceptible to the coronavirus in Wright’s community could stay at home and have groceries delivered to them for free.
Creative ways to cater to the needs of those susceptible to the coronavirus while keeping them safe.
