DutiesDrive clients (in volunteers' own vehicle) to doctor's appointments in Hamilton or locally and drive to social events once in a while. It is key to break up isolation for our clients and essential that they get to medical appointments. It is much better to have a ride with a volunteer than go alone on a bus or taxi.
BenefitsHelp out in your community, the feeling is the pay-off! You make a difference on this planet for the better. Drive clients to a client dinner or brunch and stay for dinner!
