Partners In Care, Frederick is looking for volunteer drivers to transport members throughout Frederick County. Our volunteers provide door-to-door, arm-in-arm service wherever members wish to go, whether to medical appointments, grocery stores, the pharmacy, library, or hair salon. Members even receive rides to the food bank and senior center. These simple errands provide them the opportunity to be productive in the community and enjoy the lifestyles that they previously led. More than just a ride, our volunteer drivers can provide friendly conversation to our members and help them to feel dignified and empowered as they continue to engage with their community.
Some reimbursement or tax credit is available. Background checks are required, and orientations will be provided at the volunteer’s convenience. Volunteer drivers must be 21 or older. Call 301-682-7433 to get started!
About Partners In Care
Partners In Care was founded on the principle of “neighbors helping neighbors.” We have always recognized the value of working together with community volunteers and organizations to provide strategic support for our older adults. Partners In Care promotes active engagement of members and their families by offering no-cost transportation, home repair, and member care services in exchange for donated time, gifts or talent. Our programs and services contribute to the overall safety and well-being of Frederick County's aging population.
Partners In Care believes the real wealth of a society is its people. Every human being can be a builder and contributor. Through volunteerism and member service exchange, we provide opportunities for older adults to reach their full potential while aging in their own homes.
