Sharper Hands

The fallout from COVID-19 has been abrupt and painful. Many of our friends, family members, and neighbors - particularly seniors and medically fragile individuals - have been deeply impacted by the pandemic and shelter-in-place orders. In the face of this unprecedented crisis, we must strengthen our commitment to helping each other in any way that we can.

Last week, the Sacramento Global Shapers (a group of young local leaders) announced a new initiative - Shaper Hands - to mobilize volunteers to bring groceries and supplies to community members at risk for COVID-19. While there are many ways to help and access resources, I encourage you to participate in this program - either to volunteer or to request a delivery.

How it Works: 

  • Volunteer - Do you want to support your neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis? If so, sign up to volunteer at https://shaperhands.com/volunteer. Whether it’s one time, weekly, or daily, you can help a neighbor get the resources they need.

  • Request a Delivery - Do you (or someone you know) need help getting essential supplies during the COVID-19 crisis? If so, request a free delivery at www.shaperhands.com/delivery. You’ll be contacted by a vetted volunteer to discuss your needs and to facilitate the delivery of your order to your preferred location - all while following safety guidelines.

The Shaper Hands website is translated in Arabic, Armenian, Chinese, English, Farsi, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese; and people who speak these languages (among others) are strongly encouraged to sign up to volunteer. For more information, please visit www.shaperhands.com or contact hello@globalshapers.la.

Together, we can meet the moment to ensure every Sacramentan who needs help, gets it.
