About

Help local seniors living in the Burke, City of Fairfax and central Fairfax county area with tranportation to doctor appointments and also with shopping needs. We also have new branch office located at 8350 Richmond Highway, Alexandria, Va serving local seniors in that area of Fairfax County with rides to medical appointments. This vital life-saving service is rewarding to our volunteer drivers since you meet such interesting people who are also extremely appreciative of your volunteering to help them. Our transportaton services are free to our seniors. Your time driving is totally your choice. We suggest that 1 drive per week is all you need to provide. Our seniors are asked to make their appointments on M - F between the hours of 9 AM and 3 PM to avoid peak traffic. Your volunteering involves picking up the senior at their residence and returning them safely to their homes when the appointment is finished. Our shopping assistance is provding transportation on specific days of the week for seniors from their homes and going to grocery stores or other retail locations. If this seems like something you would enjoy doing, please contact the Shepherd's Center of Fairfax-Burke at 703-426-2824 or call the Alexandria office at 703-799-0505.
