Provide Rides to Older Adults for Vaccines and Essential Appointments

Save to Favorites

A Little Help

  • 24 people are interested

A Little Help is looking for people that would be interested in providing rides for older adult neighbors to COVID19 vaccination appointments and other essential appointments. Many people who are now eligible to receive the vaccine have been isolating at home since last March and are excited to begin this new chapter. To accommodate this growing need for rides, we are in need of additional volunteers, especially those with flexibility in their schedule for last minute requests.

During COVID-19, opportunities with A Little Help have additional precautions and may be modified or canceled to meet current County guidelines. Additional precautions for providing rides may include:

  • Wash your hands before and after service
  • Wear a mask at all times during service
  • Ask that your passenger also wear a face covering
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth during service
  • Wipe down car surfaces with disinfecting wipes before picking up a member if you are able (especially if other people have been in your vehicle in the past day)
  • Members should ride in the back seat if they are able
  • Increase air circulation as much as possible by opening windows or setting the air ventilation/air conditioning on non-recirculation mode
  • Minimize physical proximity and contact; maintain 6 feet of distance when possible
Contact A Little Help to begin making a difference in your community - we will have you fill out our Volunteer Application and Background Check online at alittlehelp.org then you can begin to help an Older Adult Household in your area and make our community stronger. Drivers with A Little Help will need a valid driver's license and insurance.

Mission Statement

A Little Help is a nonprofit organization that connects neighbors of all ages to help older adults thrive in their homes and in their communities.

Description

A Little Help is based on the Village Model in which local resources and people of all ages are brought together to benefit both older adult members and the greater community. Sharing talents, resources and building intergenerational relationships allow older adults to age safely and thrive in their homes. Studies have shown that those who live longer, healthier lives have close relationships with their neighbors and continually find new purpose as they age.
