A Helping Hand

The Volunteer Companion Driver:

Without transportation older adults and those with disabilities lose their independence and are denied access to vital services, such as getting to and from medical appointments.

A Helping Hand is seeking volunteer companions who are interested in providing transportation services. Examples:

  • Driving and/or accompanying to scheduled medical appointments
  • Transportation for medication pick-up from the pharmacy

Availability during weekday business hours is ideal.

Volunteers and clients served are required to provide a prompt response to A Helping Hand's screening for symptoms, wear face coverings, practice handwashing, and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting.
