West Seattle: Volunteer Drivers Needed

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Volunteer Services

Volunteer Drivers are needed! Do you like working with seniors and people with disabilties? Do you like to drive? Do you have a good driving record? If you said yes to all the questions, Volunteer Services is looking for you to drive our clients to and from essential errands and appointments in the community. You can drive your own car and we will reimburse you for mileage! You can make a huge difference in a senior’s life, disposition, and health, with one small car ride. And make a new friend!

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income older adults and adults living with disabilities. Volunteers can provide assistance with light housecleaning, transportation, grocery shopping, home repair, and yard care. With a little help from volunteers, clients can continue to live independently in their homes.

Due to the vulnerable population we serve, volunteers must complete an application form, pass a Washington State Patrol check and attend an orientation.
