CarePool Drivers Needed!

Save to Favorites


CarePool driver

Make a positive difference in someone’s day. In June, volunteers gave nearly 150 rides to older adults in need. Vivalon needs volunteer drivers to provide rides to ambulatory adults 65 and older going to medical appointments, the pharmacy, or grocery shopping.

We offer shifts Monday - Friday with three-hour blocks of time to choose from.

  • 8:00 - 11:00 am
  • 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
  • 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The ride lengths are about 2-3 hours for each round trip. Therefore, we ask for a minimum of one three-hour shift per week.

Requirements: A valid California Driver’s License, a clean DMV report, a reliable vehicle, and proof of auto insurance is needed.

Connection Works Wonders!

Contact: volunteer@vivalon.org or 415-456-9067 or Carmen, CarePool Coordinator, carepool@vivalon.org or 415-456-9062 x131, for additional information.
