Van Driver Program
As their “van chauffeur”, you’ll enjoy fun outings that bring groups of Neighbors together. We organize a calendar of events that can include concerts, plays, movies, shopping, lunch, “silver sneakers”, chair yoga, and a variety of other fun excursions. Of course, we’ll give you the suitable training as a van driver.
The trips last 3 to 6 hours.

Routes usually take 1 to 2 hours in the midday.
It’s fun to take a Neighbor to the grocery store or other conveniently located establishments to help them with the shopping. You’ll assist with carrying bags into the home and help with unloading and storage. Equally gratifying is shopping for someone who can’t get out.
