Submitted by ken on Thu, 02/14/2013 - 11:40

There will be a FREE workshop for the JFS "On the Go 101" program at the Carmel Valley Library, 3919 Townsgate Dr., on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 from 6:30 – 7:30pm. The program provides rides for seniors. Can you imagine how it feels when you need to get somewhere but can’t because you no longer drive? Many older adults live with the loss of independence every day. Without transportation, simple things such as medical appointments, grocery shopping or a lunch date become major life challenges. You can make a difference! Become a part of On the Go’s transportation solution by joining our Rides & Smiles® Program as a Volunteer Driver.

Benefits of Volunteering: Volunteers choose who, when and where they drive, using our convenient web-based scheduling system; Mileage reimbursement; Secondary auto insurance; and Knowing you made a difference in the quality of life of an older adult!

You do not need to be Jewish to receive services nor to become a volunteer. Join us at this fun and informative workshop and learn how easy it is to become a volunteer driver for On the Go! FOR MORE INFORMATION CALL: Katey Pianko 858-637-7330, or see www.jfssd.org/onthego
