This month, we caught up with Volunteer Delivery Driver David Bell! David has been a longtime driver out of our Beaverton location, and has given more than 280 hours of time since connecting with Store to Door in 2020!
Q: How did you first get involved with S2D?
A: I was looking for a way to become involved in my community and to use the 40 hours a year that my employer gives every employee. I found a listing in volunteerhub for delivery drivers for store to door and I thought it would be fun to do and get me out of my downtown office each week for a few hours. What I found is that I really enjoyed seeing and checking in with my delivery clients each week.
Q: What keeps you busy when you are not volunteering with Store to Door?
A: Staying busy outside of delivering is not a problem. I work for a wealth management and trust company downtown as the director of operations. Something different every day. I have two daughters who I love spending time with. Also two big dogs who make sure I have plenty to clean around the house everyday.
I enjoy home improvement projects, traveling, gardening and entertaining. There is also my obsession with Costco.
Q: What is something that your fellow volunteers would be surprised to know about you?
A: I recently bought a 1969 Buick Riviera that I am working on.. my goal is to take it for a nice summer road trip down the Oregon coast.
Q: What would you tell someone who is thinking of volunteering with Store to Door?
A: If someone is thinking about volunteering – I encourage them to take the leap. You’ll love the connections and clients and fellow volunteers. Even if you’ve got a few hours a month to give .. it will help and make an impact.
