FOR 23-Mar-20

Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club asking for Community Volunteers to Help out during Covid-19

The Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club has responded to the request of Brian Leduc, owner of Foodland Thornbury, for help to provide necessary sanitation and grocery delivery services. This effort began on March 18th and requires lots of volunteers. Please join the Team of Volunteers.   

To be clear, Foodland does not have sufficient staff right now and this program is in no way intended to take jobs away from anyone or to enrich Foodland. Brian has publicly committed to making charitable contributions for the volunteer time contributed.  When staff resources exceed those necessary to operate the store then our program will be curtailed.

TC Rotary is coordinating both the Cart / Basket sanitizing program at the store front entrance as well as the free home delivery of prepaid grocery orders.

To fully support the Sanitizing program for one week requires 84 volunteers each doing a two-hour shift.  The Team is covering each shift and we would appreciate your help to spread the workload.

We have oriented the workspace inside the store entrance to provide space for social distancing, and the store is providing gloves, cloths and the sanitizing solution to clean carts and baskets between use.

Our delivery driver program is staffed to handle the current volume of orders Foodland can process. To date we have given priority to drivers who due to pre-existing conditions are vulnerable but still want to help. Drivers are only unloading prepaid grocery orders outside front doors, minimizing any contact. 

If you are interested in volunteering in support of your community or have any questions please let me know.
