Volunteer Drivers are needed every day to assist home bound elderly seniors with rides to appointments, worship services, family visitation or general errands. Imagine for one minute if you had to give up your car or could no longer drive and you had to depend on the kindness of others to give you a ride. You might be missing important medical appointments or unable to get groceries. Isolation is one of the biggest barriers to overcome.

Volunteer Drivers know how to make a difference and make it count! We schedule everything for you or you can self assign and take only the trips that fit your schedule. We pay your mileage and we cover you with other insurances to make this easy and enjoyable.

We have over 50 rides per week and we need about 30 more volunteers to end out waiting lists. You can volunteer 2 times per month and that's it. I think you just might want to volunteer more.

Matching Interests: Outdoors, Geared for 50+ volunteers, Seniors, Health & Wellness, Poverty
