El Dorado County Senior Services is currently looking for volunteer drivers for its Senior Shuttle program. “Our volunteer drivers provide a valuable service to our local seniors,” said Johanna McGillivray, Program Assistant for Senior Services. “Without the Senior Shuttle, many seniors would not be able to get to places like the grocery store or other locations.”

Senior Shuttle volunteer drivers generally help once a month, picking up seniors and delivering them to designated locations in the County, including shopping centers and other places of interest. Volunteers are currently needed for routes throughout the County, but are especially needed in Cameron Park, Georgetown, Pollock Pines and Placerville.

“This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for someone who enjoys meeting new people, driving to new places and giving back to the community,” said McGillivray. Volunteers use the County’s Senior Shuttle van, not their own vehicle. Volunteers are required to have a current California driver’s license and copy of their DMV driving record, and pass a background check.

Anyone interested in volunteering may pick up an application at the El Dorado County Senior Center, located at 937 Spring Street in Placerville, or call (530) 621-4546. A copy of the volunteer application may also be downloaded at http://www.edcgov.us/HumanServices/Volunteer_Opportunities.aspx.

The Senior Shuttle program is a service of the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency. For more information about senior services in El Dorado County, visit www.edcgov.us/HumanServices/.
