We are seeking volunteers to drive older adults to essential appointments around town. We only ask the volunteer to provide at least 1 ride (3 hours) a month; however if the volunteer would like to do more that would be wonderful. The volunteer uses their own personal vehicle and the district purchases an additional liability policy for each driver to cover them in case something where to happen. Volunteers are screened and background checked and must have a clean driving record.
