Volunteer drivers are needed for Sound Generations Volunteer Transportation program. Using their own vehicles, volunteer drivers help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to necessary medical appointments. Clients appreciate their improved access to medical care, meaningful interactions with caring volunteers, and increased peace of mind. Unfortunately, the program does not have enough drivers to meet the demand for transportation from vulnerable seniors. If you have the "drive" to help others, a clean driving record, and some daytime availability, call (206) 748-7588, email Diana at dianas@soundgenerations.org, or visit https://soundgenerations.org/get-involved/volunteer/ to find out more.
