No One Left Behind is seeking Driver Volunteers for the San Francisco East Bay Chapter
No One Left Behind is the only veteran-run and veteran focused organization serving combat interpreters and combat support personnel who were forced to leave their homes in Iraq and Afghanistan due to being threatened by the Islamic State/the Taliban for working for the US military.
These refugees, who risked their lives and those of their families for our troops, arrive in the US with few funds and no household goods. Our mission is to provide them with the support to start a successful life in the US.
We are looking for volunteers to assist when our refugee clients have critical transportation needs. Most of our clients do have cars or even bicycles when they first arrive in the United States. Examples include helping our clients get around to government buildings for social welfare assistance, job interviews, or doctors appointments. Our drivers provide a critical part of our care network for our clients.
In the case that a client needs transportation, our team emails out to available driver volunteers to check availability and schedule rides where possible. As an all volunteer organization, we respect our volunteers' other commitments.
