CARE CAR DRIVERS
Some seniors do not have any means of transportation, making it difficult and expensive to attend medical appointments. Our Care Car drivers pick seniors up at their home, take them to their appointment, wait for them and then take them home again. An hour or so of your time, as frequently as you wish, helps provide this invaluable service. Drivers use their own vehicles and are required to have $2 million liability insurance.
ADULT DAY PROGRAM
This is a special program for physically & mentally challenged adults and takes place on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday afternoons. Volunteers help by socializing with patrons, assisting with activities and crafts and helping serve a snack.
