As healthy teens, Daniel felt that he and his peers were uniquely situated to provide help to those who were at high risk during the pandemic. Daniel started ZoomersToBoomers to provide safe, free grocery delivery to the elderly and immunocompromised. He soon realized that the same population would benefit from the social connection his volunteers could provide. ZoomersToBoomers grew from a city-wide support system to an international organization. With over 35 associated sites in the US and one overseas, the organization has made more than 5,000 grocery deliveries through a 1,000+ member volunteer force.
