Van Driver

Do you like helping others? Can you drive (valid drivers license)? If so, we have the volunteer opportunity for you!

We are in need of a motivated, friendly individual to pick up wheelchairs and other pieces of mobility equipment from donors. All you need to do is come get the keys to our van (which has a wheelchair lift attached) and be able to find the donation location. The time commitment is low--once or twice a week--and flexible based on the donor.

All these seemingly-small tasks add up to one big life changing moment for our clients: When they receive their equipment, they gain the freedom they feared they would never be able to afford.
