Westside Pacific Villages

Volunteer Driver with Member

Our seniors deserve to stay in their homes and engaged in the communities they love. Westside PacificVillages is making that happen.

WPV is not a retirement facility or caregiving agency. We are a non-profit organization coordinating a network of local volunteers to assist our members with everyday life.

Transportation is our number one service requested, given that many of our members can no longer drive. Getting out and about is a necessary and integral part of maintaining a healthy, happy life. These local trips often take less than 30 minutes and volunteers can choose to do just one-way if not both ways.

Daytime Drivers- Volunteers are needed throughout the week to drive members to/from medical appointments, social events, beauty shop/barber, the grocery store, and assist with other general errands.

Weekend Drivers - Volunteers are needed to drive members to/from religious services, the grocery store, and assist with other general errands.

Mileage reimbursement is also available for volunteers who drive older adults in the community.

To learn more about our volunteer opportunities, call (310) 695-7030 or email info@thewpv.org .
To learn more about us online, visit our website at thewpv.org.

**Please note, as we begin helping seniors start to get out and about again, we are requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination by both the volunteer and senior prior to any in-person interactions.

Thank you!
