Enumclaw, Do You Want to Make a Difference in the Lives of Seniors?

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Sound Generations

Volunteer driver and a client

Are you looking for something fun to do... do you like to drive... do you want to make a difference and help people? Volunteer driving is an opportunity to help seniors in your community. You can control the amount of time you want to be involved. Most volunteers drive once a week, some twice a week, others every other week. We are very flexible and will work with your schedule.

Using your own vehicle, you would help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to much needed medical appointments. Clients greatly 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 growing demand for transportation from King County seniors.

Our volunteer drivers do a lot more than drive! By volunteering with Sound Generations Volunteer Transportation Program, drivers not only provide needed transportation but companionship for both the senior and the volunteer.

We really need YOU! Help make a huge difference in the lives of seniors near you by becoming a volunteer driver.
