This year’s difficult times have made our service even more indispensable. In circumstances such as these, a familiar friendly face can mean a great deal; we are particularly grateful for the incredible commitment of our drivers and for their kindness and patience in difficult times.
Each week, Store to Door drivers deliver groceries to more than 300 clients across the Portland metro area. Picking up from our two Fred Meyer shopping locations, they load their personal vehicles up with blue or gray tubs and deliver to 3-10 regular clients. Braving stairs and elevators, down-town parking and summer temperatures, our drivers work within social distancing guidelines for drop off and a quick check-in with each client before moving on to the next.
While the job is not easy, our drivers work tirelessly to make sure that our clients receive a high quality of service and a friendly face at the door every week. We hear regularly how vital this connection is to our clients, and how much they appreciate the work that our drivers do.
If you see any of these friendly faces out and about, we hope you will help use appreciate them with a thumbs up or a wave! We love our drivers!
