Call for Volunteer Drivers to drive Madison Seniors and Veterans

August 19, 2019 12:03 PM

I'm sharing a notice from a great non-profit located in our district that is looking for volunteers. Note: RSVP receives funding from both the City of Madison and Dane County:

Urgent Need for Volunteer Drivers to drive Madison Seniors and Veterans

Like all Dane County communities, Madison has a growing senior population, and a large veteran population as well, many of whom no longer drive. Losing personal transportation is a hurdle that leads many seniors and veterans to turn to volunteer drivers registered with Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Dane County to get to the medical appointments that are so important to maintain their health.

RSVP's Driver Escort volunteers drive seniors to medical appointments and Vets Helping Vets volunteers drive veterans and their families to important appointments. Madison has a serious need for more drivers to make sure both of these programs can serve the growing requests from passengers.

The position is very flexible volunteers choose the rides they take during the service hours Monday-Friday 8am-4pm and they receive mileage reimbursement and extra liability insurance. Please consider volunteering -- pay it forward now, so it's there for you later! For more information about driving for seniors or veterans contact Mary Schmelzer at 608-441-7896 or mschmelzer@rsvpdane.org.
 

As always, if there is anything I can do to help, feel free to reach out: district19@cityofmadison.com
