I Can Do a Lot, But I Cannot Drive
You can help!

Your Neighbor who is blind and needs to get back and forth to medical appointments during the work day needs your help. They might need you to fold and stow a walker or wheeler or a portable wheel chair to eliminate long walks. If you can walk them in/out of the doctor's office and wait to bring them home you will have done a great deed!

  • a desire to help others;
  • a pleasant demeanor;
  • a good reading/speaking voice;
  • average reading skills;
  • organizational or planning abilities;
  • a good driving record;
  • a clear criminal history;
  • two references
  • access to a car with proof of insurance;
  • a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.

Volunteers will be matched within three to five miles of home or work.
