Our Volunteer Driver Service takes people from their homes to community and health appointments in Cambridge and Hamilton. For instance, to their doctor, hospital outpatient clinic, medical specialist, or medical center. Our service relies on volunteer drivers to safely pick up and drop off our passengers, assist them in and out of the vehicle, offer a smile and a chat along the way. Volunteer Drivers use their own vehicle and mileage is reimbursed.
