Maple Valley: Volunteer Drivers Make A Difference

ORGANIZATION: Sound Generations

Volunteer driver and a client

Volunteer Transportation is a program of Sound Generations, a non-profit organization working to help seniors remain safely independent and connected to their communities. Every week, there are a growing number of older adults in need of transportation. Volunteer drivers have a huge positive impact by giving a ride to a medical appointment, waiting with the client, and returning them home. A ride is provided along with assurance, human connection, and peace of companionship.

Volunteer driving is very flexible: volunteers choose how many rides they want to provide, on what day and time, and to what area they want to drive. Most of our volunteers provide a couple rides per week, some do more and some less.

You too can help seniors get "on the road" to improved health and peace of mind by becoming a volunteer today.

"You have done wonders for my life. I would not have been able to stay in my own home for as long as I have without your help. Thank you for all you do." Jeanne, 84
