Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Eastside Neighbors Volunteer Program (ENVP) in Tucson since 2004, is the 2nd largest neighborhood association helping seniors in Tucson. We serve approximately 310 senior clients, by providing transport in addition to other services. ENVP coordinates volunteers who use their own vehicles to provide private transportation for medical appointment, grocery shopping and errands. We also will grocery shop for our Seniors. Other services include making friendly phone calls just to offer a cheerful voice and supportive ear or provide a few minutes of dog walking for a senior's best furry friend. Please consider devoting a few hours per month to the Eastside Tucson Senior Community by becoming an ENVP volunteer.
Our friendly office volunteers (also needed) call at least 4 days in advance to schedule trips so you can accept or decline based on your availability. There is no required monthly minimum and most trips are 2 to 3 hours. Mileage reimbursement is available on a limited basis. In addition to a caring, helpful attitude you must be at least 18 years old, participate in a training orientation, maintain a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance, and a safe driving record.
