Lights, Camera, Action! DMCC’s volunteers drive seniors to medical appointments, create and lead engaging programs, serve meals, and so much more. This year, we’re going to celebrate our volunteers with the gloss and floss of Hollywood, because they’re the stars of this show! We’ll have food, beverages, and giveaways, and it’s a great opportunity for DMCC volunteers to rub elbows with one another while sharing their experiences. If you have not yet received your invitation for the celebration on 5/15, please contact the DMCC office.
The DMCC volunteer ride service is vital to seniors who are aging independently at home but no longer drive. Our generous volunteers help our riders with grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other essential errands. Our volunteers love the flexible schedule, and they report enormous satisfaction from the difference they make in the lives of their neighbors. We’re training new volunteer drivers this summer! If you are a licensed driver with a clean record, access to your own vehicle, and a desire to spend a little time with your senior and disabled neighbors, please give our office a call to find out if this volunteer opportunity is right for you.
Do you know about DMCC’s free transportation services for seniors? We have several solutions to help Del Mar seniors get around when they no longer drive; the DMCC van takes them grocery shopping on a weekly basis and to other retail stores regularly, and we arrange personalized rides with volunteers to take them to medical appointments in the volunteers’ own vehicles. Please contact our office if you are a senior who no longer drives, or encourage your senior neighbor to do so. We’ll set you up with the qualifying paperwork, give you all your options, and get you going!
