Students Start Nonprofit to Help Vulnerable Individuals During Quarantine

SQD, Ink. (short for Self-Quarantined Delivery) is a student initiative at Pepperdine University that provides a free grocery delivery service to those who cannot do it themselves, i.e. the elderly or people with autoimmune disorders. Since its founding it has been picked up by student volunteers across the country and now has over 80 volunteers in cities like Denver, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The group relies on technology—social media, Venmo, and Factime—to conduct their business. The student founders are now looking to formalize their business model to become more efficient and scalable.
