Volunteer Drivers Needed! 


Volunteers are needed to pick up food donations every weekday. We need "back-up drivers" who can assist as needed, when our regular drivers are unavailable. 
Drive our food program van from our Doylestown office, picking up and delivering to food pantries in Bucks County. You don't have to commit to every day, but can be on-call as needed drivers to support our food delivery network. Valid driver's license and clean driving record. Ride along one of our drivers any weekday to see what it takes! Contact Eileen at ealbillar@bcoc.org to schedule a ride along and help us
