Please keep in mind that this initiative is being run by volunteers. We do not have the funds or the capacity to run full background checks on each volunteer/person needing help. Each person is run through a quick screening to check for inaccurate information. Information like a criminal or sex offense may show up at this point.
When something looks off we will require additional information from the participant. At this point, they will be fully screened including our unique photo ID verification, in which the person holds a unique one-time code with their government-issued ID in the same photo. Their information will also be sent off to a third party for deep review. This normally takes 48-72 hours. In rare cases we may require the participant to pay for the background check if they would like to volunteer on our platform.
By completing the signup form to be matched or to be a volunteer you agree that you accept all risk and responsibility and further hold any facilitator/volunteer/staff, etc associated with CovidSafeCorps.com (INC) harmless of any wrong doing.
Sign up and let us know how we can help! Our service is free and we don't expect anything in return. We just want to help!
We currently only assist in Florida. If you are located in another area, let us know that you are interested in having us help.
As more volunteers come onboard, delivery times will decrease and areas served will increase. We aim to respond to each request within 24 hours and have items delivered within two hours after they have been purchased.
Of course, this is not a one-time service, we are here to help you as long as you need help. We can only come once a day, but a volunteer will be happy to assist you again when you need something else.
