Volunteer Drivers Urgently Needed
Pima Council on Aging, United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona, Mobile Meals of Tucson, Eastside Neighbors Volunteer Program, Neighbors Care Alliance, and Interfaith Community Services, through our collaboration on the Elder Alliance, are looking for a few driven men and women this summer with a car and a few extra hours to spend assisting elderly and physically challenged adults.
More than 150 volunteer drivers are urgently needed to deliver meals to the homebound or transport frail and aging adults to medical appointments, the grocery store and other essential destinations.
Summer months and higher temperatures have created a driver drought in the Tucson area with many regular transportation volunteers heading for cooler climes. At the same time, the needs of elderly and disabled adults in the community do not take a vacation. Drivers make a real difference in the ability of our frail and vulnerable neighbors to maintain their health and independence.
