“We started this, this past Monday. I heard on Tuesday, there was a record day of over 450 hampers delivered,” said Niemczyk. “Anywhere between 50-70 hampers per day per driver, and we have three drivers.”
Niemczyk adds that the contactless, safe delivery has been very well received by everyone involved.

Niemczyk stressed that all calls for CAA roadside assistance services will continue to be met throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
