In 2019, volunteer drivers logged over 14,000 km driving grateful residents to appointments!
The Program Benefits Two Groups:
Volunteer drivers understand that their involvement fills a need in the community. They provide safe, free and reliable transportation for residents who would otherwise struggle to meet this need. It is a somewhat flexible opportunity, as volunteers can work the drives around their schedules. Mileage is compensated at established rates.
Residents have improved quality of life when:
- the stress associated with arranging transportation is alleviated
- connections to others in the community are built
- long lasting relationships with volunteer drivers are formed
