Seniors Driver Volunteer
During the current Covid19 crisis, more and more people are self isolating and unable to rely on supports through friends and families. We are seeking volunteers to support our expanded food and seniors programs for vulnerable clients during Covid19 through several roles.
The Seniors Driver Volunteer supports the Safe Seniors Strong Communities by driving seniors to key appointments, including transportation to medical appointments. Due to risk, this role currently involves some additional protocols (compared to other volunteer roles) in addition to our Covid19 protocols for all volunteers. Please see the following page for these specific guidelines.
Volunteers must be able during daytime hours Monday to Friday (but may give their availability to the program coordinators). Volunteers do not need to commit to a regular shift. Rather the volunteers are booked in an on call basis.
Number of Volunteers Needed: 5
