Like many students around the nation, Daniel Goldberg, a high school junior from Santa Barbara, had been staying home and practicing social distancing to help curb the spread of coronavirus.
But after observing his father, an ER physician at a nearby hospital, go to work every day and put himself on the front lines for his community, Daniel was inspired to do more.
“I was just sitting at home twiddling my thumbs. I was like: ‘There has to be something I can do to try to help out in the community,’” he said. “I started thinking and brainstorming on how I can help.”
Knowing that the elderly have more severe health implications if they contract COVID-19 than teenagers, Daniel created Zoomers to Boomers, a website to help local seniors get the groceries they need without going to stores and risking social interaction. Senior citizens fill out a list of all the groceries they need on the Zoomers to Boomers website and the next day groceries are delivered to their homes by Daniel and his high school friends.
