I am a volunteer and can offer assistance
In order to help ensure individuals who are more at risk of developing serious complications from Covid-19 can still meet their basic needs, Berkeley Mutual Aid is offering a matching service between individuals who are high-risk and those who are low-risk for the remainder of the pandemic or until one of the two is no longer in need or able to help.
Once a match is made, you and your buddy can coordinate the delivery of essential supplies, like food, toiletries, and prescriptions. You and your match can also help one another feel less isolated by checking-in on the phone or by other electronic means. Please follow all directions provided by the CDC to mitigate community spread.
This match program is being organized by volunteers for the benefit of those in our community. By completing the sign up form to be matched you agree that you accept all risk and responsibility and further hold any facilitator associated with Berkeley Mutual Aid harmless. For any additional questions, please contact
We will do our best to match you with someone in your zip code area as soon as an individual with a request becomes available.
What are your pronouns?
Can you receive text messages at the above phone number?
For matching purposes, please identify your neighborhood or the one closest to you.
South Berkeley - I AM COMING OVER FROM SBMAP
UC Berkeley Campus
Are you at lower risk of developing serious complications from COVID-19, as determined by the CDC?
For the purposes of the matching process, people who are in the lower risk category must be BOTH under 65 years of age and not have any underlying health conditions that mean they are immunocompromised. By selecting "yes" you certify that both these things are true.
Are you willing to be paired with one high-risk individual to assist them until the end of the social distancing period and/or until one individual decides they would like to stop working together?
What can you assist with? Please select all that apply.
Shopping or running errands approx. 1/week (groceries, picking up prescriptions, etc.)
Provide a sense of social support ("chat buddy" phone calls, messages, provided remotely)
Support navigating social services and identifying resources (help navigating social services, signing up for benefits, services such as Meals on Wheels, etc.)
Financial assistance to meet immediate needs (direct cash assistance, pay for groceries, prescriptions, etc.)
Do you have access to a car?
Please provide any additional information about the type of assistance you are interested in providing to your buddy.
