We Need You! RSVP Volunteer Medical Drivers Needed

We Need You! RSVP Volunteer Medical Drivers Needed
The Retired Senior Volunteer Program is currently looking for volunteer medical transport drivers. Without transportation to medical appointments, many seniors in Sullivan County would not receive the medical attention they need to stay healthy. RSVP volunteer medical drivers transport Sullivan County seniors to medical appointments, enabling seniors to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible in our community.
Although we are especially in need of volunteer drivers, RSVP offers a full range of volunteer opportunities with over 40 local and national organizations. With RSVP, you choose how and where you want to serve. You choose the amount of time you want to give and you choose whether you want to draw on your skills or develop new ones.
In short, you find the opportunity that's right for you.
With RSVP, you'll receive training from the organization where you serve, mileage reimbursement and supplemental insurance while on duty.
And remember: When you volunteer, you're not just helping others—you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends.
If you are 55+ and reside in Sullivan County get involved, and join RSVP today!
Call: Caryn Mathews, RSVP Project Director @807-0251
