Help with Senior Rides

Save to Favorites


Help seniors maintain their health and well-being by assisting them with rides to medical related appointments. This opportunity offers a flexible schedule. Volunteers can select rides based on availability and preferred geographic area. Mileage reimbursement is available as well!

Transportation is one of the highest needs of seniors in our community. When a senior is no longer able to drive because of physical limitations, vision changes or side effects of medications, they can often feel stuck and isolated. Volunteers can help make a difference in a senior's life by providing that lifeline to access medical care, and enjoy a friendly conversation on the way!
