Do you enjoy driving?

Volunteers use their own vehicle to transport clients to their appointments. Our transportation service is a "curb-to-curb" service, and clients are ambulatory. Volunteer drivers are reimbursed mileage, following federal government guidelines for mileage expenses. Volunteers can drive as much, or as little, as they wish — we are very flexible with days and times that fit your schedule.
