Just 1 hour a month could change the life of someone in our community. Many of our elder neighbors can not afford the cab fair to reach their numerous medical appointments nor can they walk to the limited bus line without assistance. Interfaith Caregivers volunteers help alleviate these worries by providing free, door to door transportation.
On average, Interfaith Caregivers provides 110 round trip transports per month.
During that time our volunteer drivers transported clients to:
+ Olean Medical Group
+ Medical Arts Building
+ Dialysis Building, Olean General Hospital, Gundlah Dental Clinic, OGH Outpatient Surgical Suite
+ Holiday Park Center
+ Allegany Eye Association
+ Olean Physical Therapy Professionals
+ Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry
+ plus many more locations
We could serve more people with more volunteer drivers. Please call Megan Taylor at 372-6283 for more volunteer information.
Please also note that Interfaith Caregivers volunteers are covered under our volunteer insurance. This, in addition to your own auto insurance, will protect you in the event of an accident.
Volunteers 55 and older qualify for gas mileage reinmbursement through the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) through the Cattaraugus County Department of Aging, if the volunteer chooses. Ask us for more information.
