CarePool Drivers Needed!

CarePool driver

Make a positive difference in someone's day. In June, volunteers gave nearly 250 rides to older adults in need. Vivalon needs volunteer drivers to provide rides to ambulatory adults 65 and older, going to medical appointments or grocery shopping. Drivers use their own car, receive ride requests through email, and accept them online. Pick the rides that are convenient to your schedule.

A clean background check and driving record are required. Rewards are helping older adults and making connections.

Ride lengths vary. Please be prepared to provide two rides per month. CarePool provides a very flexible schedule for our volunteers.

All volunteers are required to have their COVID-19 boosters.

Connection Works Wonders!

Contact: volunteer@vivalon.org or 415-456-9067 or Carmen, CarePool Manager, carepool@vivalon.org or 415-456-9062 x103, for additional information.
