Helping Hands Community is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving those most vulnerable to COVID-19: senior citizens, the immunocompromised, and people with preexisting medical conditions that put them at additional risk. Our national network of volunteers deliver groceries, medications, and other necessary supplies, and our local and national partners-including city and county governments, mutual-aid organizations, faith-based organizations, food banks, community groups-scale our efforts to help us identify and reach those in need. The Helping Hands Community platform makes local volunteerism easy and reliable while providing an easily integrated, tech-enabled solution for partners to scale their impact. Founded by veterans of Uber, Facebook, and Google, the Helping Hands Community organization comprises more than 100 volunteers from professionals who want to give back to students beginning their careers from around the country.
