Volunteers needed to provide rides for Kent seniors

Senior Services' Volunteer Transportation provides vital rides for Kent seniors. Using their own vehicles, volunteer drivers help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to necessary medical appointments.

Clients appreciate their improved access to medical care, meaningful interactions with caring volunteers, and increased peace of mind.

Unfortunately, the program does not have enough drivers to meet the demand for transportation from older residents of the Kent community.

For those interested in helping out, call 206-748-7588, email Hilary at hilaryc@seniorservices.org, read the services' blog at www.volunteertransportation.blogspot.com, or visit www.seniorservices.org/transportation.
