We are looking for volunteers willing to assist on and "on call" basis for transportation needs for clients. These transportation needs are one time trips, in many cases medical appointments, that individuals are not able to get to on their own. We match Male clients with Male drivers and Female clients with Female drivers.
We are not asking volunteers to become clients "on call rides" or to be giving rides daily or even weekly. The way it is intended to work is that occasionally we will get a request, for example, that a client has a doctor's appointment with a specialist in Holland next week Tuesday at 3pm and will last an hour. We then call our Transportation Volunteers to see if anyone is available on that day at the time. We hopefully will then be able to connect that need with a driver. Most times it is a once time need. There are times though when a client might have several repeat appointments maybe once a month for 6 months. While it is nice for the same volunteer to provide the rides it is not expected.
All of our Clients are locations in NE Ottawa County and usually need rides to Holland or Grand Rapids. If you think this is something you might occasionally be able to help with please contact us.
