Volunteer drivers needed

The Town of Oakville provides seniors 80+ an opportunity to get out and socialize with others through our Friendship Luncheon programs. Volunteer drivers pick clients up at their homes (around 10:30 a.m.), bring them to the centres and then return to take them home (around 2 p.m.).

If you are able to volunteer one hour per week, please contact Stephanie Coughlin, at 905-845-6601 ext. 3498, for the Iroquois Ridge Older Adult Centre (every Thursday).

Drivers receive compensation for their mileage.
