Courtesy Forbes Like most Americans, when the severity of the coronavirus became evident, 17-year old Danny Goldberg wanted to do “something” but he felt helpless. However, unlike most of us, he quickly acted upon his desire to help and set up a volunteer service in which Zoomers (members of Generation-Z, born between 1995 and 2015) delivered groceries and other necessities to Boomers (members of the Baby Boom generation, born between 1944 and 1964), free of charge. Danny aptly named his group, Zoomers To Boomers (ZTB).
The process is simple: Boomers email their grocery lists to ZTB and pay for the groceries electronically. The Zoomers then pick the items up and deliver them to the Boomers’ residences, reducing the chance of an older person contracting the coronavirus. He started three weeks ago and the effort has already spread to 12 cities.
