Volunteer drivers needed for Senior Services's transport program

Senior Services’ Volunteer Transportation provides vital rides for Snoqualmie and other King County seniors. Now, it needs volunteers to stay successful
Using their own vehicles, volunteer drivers help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to necessary medical appointments. Clients appreciate their improved access to medical care, meaningful interactions with caring volunteers, and increased peace of mind.
Betty L., a regular client of the program, explains, “Volunteer Transportation takes away all the stress I used to have with finding transportation!”
Volunteers find the program to be equally valuable. Mary Anne M., a long-term driver, writes, “I so enjoy driving for Senior Services’ Volunteer Transportation and have met so many kind and interesting people. They are as good for me as I am for them.”
Currently, the program does not have enough drivers to meet the demand for transportation from older residents of Snoqualmie and the surrounding communities. Anyone who has the drive to help others may volunteer.
