Looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity but have limited time to spare?
Driving for Newton at Home may be just what you've been looking for. Newton at Home is a membership
organization created to provide Newton seniors with support and social connections that help them remain in their homes as they age. Many of the more than 200 members no longer drive and depend on volunteers to take them to medical appointments, social activities, supermarkets and many other local destinations.
You drive when it is convenient for you, choosing from a long list of ride requests each week. Busy for the week? No problem. You just don't respond. Able to give a few hours while the kids are in school? Sign up for the ride of your choice. You will be rewarded by meeting some of the most remarkable Newton residents while you perform a vital community service. For more information and no obligation whatsoever, call Newton at Home at 617-795-2560.
