It’s a healthy way to kick off your April Fool’s Day – a 5k Fun Run at Bohls Park to benefit your senior neighbors who no longer drive. Proceeds from your entry fee go directly to Drive a Senior’s  Round Rock, Pflugerville, Hutto and East Austin regions. Three levels of corporate sponsorship are available for this event to companies who would like to align their brands with support for fellow citizens who prefer to “age in place.” (Download corporate flyer). We also are offering families and individuals three sponsorship options  (Download family flyer).

This is the first year of what we expect to be an annual event – organized with the help of the Pflugerville and Hendrickson high schools’ Interact Clubs.

Now in our 14th season, the annual “Swinging for Seniors” golf outing will be held April 6 at Star Ranch. It’s a full round of golf — with mulligans and other side games to help you improve your score; a catered BBQ dinner and a fully stocked beverage cart to aid in lubricating your swing. Sign up as a team or individually and we’ll pair you up. Proceeds from your entry fee go directly to Drive a Senior’s Round Rock, Pflugerville, Hutto and East Austin regions. TSix levels of corporate sponsorship are also available for companies who would like to align their brands with support for fellow citizens who prefer to “age in place”  but need transportation to make that feasible. (Download corporate flyer).

How you can help ….

SHARE YOUR TIME: Even if driving’s not your cup of tea there are a world of ways to help your homebound senior neighbors. Are you good with a wrench? Join our brigade of part- time handymen. Like to visit? Make occasional home visits; they’re always welcome. Like spending time on the phone? Check in with a senior neighbor who’d love a chat? How about helping out in our office part time? Assisting in our next fund-raiser? Passing out flyers? If you have the time, we have the task.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Donations make it possible for Drive a Senior to serve our nearby senior citizens and to plan to continue that service  as the needs grow. You can donate to our Drive a Senior region below. And there are other ways to contribute by doing things your already do anyway.
