Are you Motor-vated?
RSVP of Snohomish County
By that I mean; do you like driving? If so, we can use your help! If you have a vehicle that is insured, has working lights, brakes and a horn you can be a volunteer driver.
All over Snohomish County there are people who don't have personal transportation, a support network to give them a ride, the funds to use a taxi or the time to travel by bus. They are our clients. Low income seniors, some with mild disabilities.
They need rides to (usually) doctor appointments. You get notified a few days before of the rides needed (originating in your local area), select which ones you can do and are given the details (where to pick up, what time and the destination). The clients can enter and exit on their own. You take them where they need to be and bring them home. Your driving record does not have to be perfect.
Remember, you pick where and when you drive. Mileage reimbursement is available. If you are age 55 and over that is great!
This opportunity posted by the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program- helping those over age 55 find a place to help. NOTE- You don't have to be 55 or over to volunteer for this.
