Do You Love to Drive?
We are in need of reliable, caring drivers, like Don DeBaeremaeker, who helps so much and clients ask for him by name.
Our volunteer drivers supplement the driving of friends and family for those without the ability to drive. The volunteer driver commitment involves picking up a client and dropping them off at their appointment or activity and then later, picking up the same client and returning them to their home. Volunteer drivers receive some reimbursement which is paid to them by the client to help offset the cost of gas and wear and tear on their vehicle.
