Dates and Times

This is an ongoing program.

Monday through Friday.

Morning and Afternoon.

We look for volunteers who have time on weekdays during business hours.  

Additional information

It is not necessary to own a car or drive!  We often need a volunteer to accompany someone in transportation services such as Green Cab, The Ride, Mart, and Door2Door.  Escort volunteers are incredibly helpful for folks who are frail or who have mobility challenges, and clinics often require patients to have an escort home after receiving anesthesia.  Escort volunteers do not attend the appointment in the exam room.

Volunteers receive emails about upcoming Escort requests and reply when available.  This role requires time on weekdays during business hours, so it works well for retirees!
