Message from Carina

Our volunteer drivers are driving seniors to appointments on and off Cortes Island. There are a few but not many volunteers who are willing to take the time to drive someone off island.

To spread the "workload" we are looking for more volunteers who would want to drive seniors to and/or from town, mostly to the hospital in Campbell River. Your ferry costs and gas will be paid for.

Sometimes, but not always, the client and you would get priority loading. You might have time to tend to some of your own errands. You would always have the choice to say "yes" or "no" when I call to ask if you can do it on a particular day.

It might happen just once a year or a few times, depending on how many volunteers we have, and how many requests.

We – the seniors who need these rides and I – would be most grateful if you can volunteer for this service.

Feel free to contact me for more information or for signing up.
