IVCG, a group of "neighbors helping neighbors," seeks volunteer drivers to bring healthy seniors to their medical appointments. We are the only volunteer-driven agency that has stayed "on the road" during the entire COVID-19 pandemic, and our services are more in demand than ever before.
As our driver, you will commit to bringing a senior to her doctor's appointment at least twice a month. All of our appointments are in New Haven County and our cloud-based scheduling program makes accepting appointments and connecting with clients easy. You drive where, when and how you wish, but know you are providing an absolutely vital service to our seniors.
You should have a valid driver's license and auto insurance; we provide the training and the volunteer liability insurance. As with other opportunities, we do require a background check of our volunteers. We provide PPE to all drivers and clients and comply with all applicable government regulations.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
