Volunteers Needed to Drive Older Adults

Many older adults in our community struggle to get to medical appointments and shop for groceries, especially during the winter months. We are looking for hearty and conscientious drivers who enjoy helping others get where they need to go.

Longfellow/Seward Healthy Seniors is looking for volunteers who can use their vehicle to safely transport clients to medical appointments, grocery shopping, prescription pick-up, and more. Volunteers must be 21 or over, have a well-maintained car, auto insurance, and complete a background check.

This is an opportunity to help an older neighbor continue to live independently, and while you are at it, make a new friend!

Please contact Julia Ockuly, Volunteer & Service Coordinator at 612-729-5799 or visit lshealthyseniors.org to learn more.
