The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Losing the ability to drive can be devastating for seniors and individuals with disabilities in our community.
When you become a driver with SAINT- Senior Alternatives in Transportation- you keep a senior mobile and active. Providing transportation to medical appointments, social lunches, grocery stores, and special events is an easy yet powerful way to serve. You give someone the ability to stay independent in their own home without giving up the freedom to travel around town! This program is totally dependent on volunteers like you!
Your time commitment is flexible. You can be a regularly scheduled driver or a substitute. You'll receive training, support, supplemental insurance and gas reimbursement while you volunteer. And you're likely to make a few new friends while cruising around town!
