Drive Happiness is a non-profit organization which provides low-cost, volunteer-based assisted transportation to older Albertans. It ensures seniors who are unable to drive or use alternate forms of transit due to health, mobility, and/or income barriers are connected to community-based programs and services. This means seniors can attend recreation programs, socialize with loved ones, attend community events, obtain medical care, pick up groceries, and do all the things they need to live well. It also means that caregivers receive a much-needed break.
Volunteering with Drive Happiness has definite perks. You choose when and where you drive, and there is no minimum/ maximum requirement so volunteering is convenient for you. You also receive a fuel reimbursement and COVID-19 PPE. But most importantly, you get to meet vibrant, appreciative seniors who have interesting life stories to share. So volunteering will not only help you help your community, but will also give you an opportunity to make new friends and have fun.
