Help Seniors in your Community!

We are so excited to launch our Kootenay Seniors Volunteer Driver Program (KSVDP) at the end of April! This great new program will offer affordable transportation 7 days a week for seniors who need transportation to access medical appointments – including Trail hospital – financial services, groceries, and social activities, recreational outings or other errands in Nelson and Region.

We’re looking for VOLUNTEER DRIVERS!

It’s a great way to support seniors in your community and it’s totally flexible – choose the hours you’re available and we’ll book seniors with you accordingly. And while this is totally a volunteer gig, we’ll cover your fuel costs, so you have no out of pocket expenses.

Seniors experience loneliness and poor health when they’re isolated by their inability to find transportation that works for them. This is a growing problem in the Kootenays and we need your help!
