Northwest Valley Connect officials are looking for people who can give four hours per week of their time to drive neighbors to the doctor or shopping.
Volunteers can join the cadre of others as a team of drivers in the northwest Valley. A friendly neighbor who will help those most frail are critical in helping NVC serve the Northwest Valley communities.
NVC provides transportation to medical appointments, COVID vaccinations, essential errands and more for seniors 65 and older, veterans and persons with disabilities, giving them independence and mobility with dignity. NVC is a critical link for many who live alone and do not drive, enabling them to fully function again.
After safety training, NVC officials ask drivers to commit to at least one shift per week. Flexible scheduling is available to accommodate volunteers’ availability.
Call the NVC volunteer coordinator at 623-282-9300 or email email@example.com.
