Austin Volunteers

Help deliver essentials to those who can’t leave their house.

Austin needs you. Become an on-demand volunteer for essential deliveries to the communities most in need.

You can perform deliveries if you are not feeling any Covid-19 Symptons, have not traveled out of the country, to a high-risk state or come in contact with a sick person in the past 14 days, while also practicing social distancing and mask procedures.

The HelpAction platform allows nonprofit organizations to act as dispatchers to help manage time-constrained volunteers and assistance requests from communities throughout the city.

Nonprofit Agencies - Distribution Assistance

If you serve a vulnerable population in need of local volunteer support, consider partnering with Help Action. Through the Help Action platform, you can coordinate the delivery of resources and services with our pool of on-call volunteers. 

COVID19 has affected many of the direct-to-client services that nonprofits have been providing for years – if not decades. The need to transform the standard ways of providing services and develop new intuitive systems to communicate with clients and serve their needs is more apparent than ever.

Help Action streamlines the volunteer recruitment process to provide qualified and passionate volunteers interested in furthering your mission. Our platform automates text-based communication with volunteers and clients requesting help.

Nonprofit agencies access request forms within the portal to receive distribution assistance for essential items that need delivery. HelpAction can provide a organization-specific request page for you to put in requests for your essential items to be picked-up and delivered by a HelpAction volunteer, to those in need that your organization services. 

Service Based Organizations

Helpaction is currently looking to partner with service based organizations (Rotary, Kiwanis, Lion’s Club, Junior League, etc) who have a volunteer pool they can integrate to manage the incoming requests from those most affected by covid19.

How It Works

  1. Sign up to become a regular Help Action volunteer
  2. Select from incoming SMS requests to fulfill submitted by nonprofits or people in need
  3. Coordinate delivery and communicate directly with recipient requesting the order.
  4. Fulfill order and repeat when you are next available.
