Interfaith Volunteers works with caring, empathetic volunteers who provide free transportation for seniors in their own communities, helping them connect with critical medical care so they can stay healthy and happy. Once you've been background-checked and trained, you'll use your own car to transport seniors to their medical appointments (non-sick visits) and provide a friendly face at an often difficult and lonely time. (We are happy to reimburse you for your expenses on request.) You drive who, when and where you wish, by selecting your rides from an online menu of available appointments. Please join us to make a real difference in the life of a senior.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
