The joys of caring for the well-being of others

What would you do if you could no longer drive?  How would you get to your doctor or dentist?  How would you get to the grocery store or post office? YOU can help fill this critical need for your senior neighbors by supporting Drive a Senior!

Every dollar you donate goes toward helping a senior to age in their home, receive healthcare, share a laugh with a volunteer and feel the freedom a ride can offer. Consider volunteering and warming the heart of someone needing your smile.

Send us an email and we’ll get you on-board with our fabulous team of volunteers. nc@driveasenior.org

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 home bound 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 plan to continue that service as needs grow. You can donate to Drive a Senior – North Central Austin online here. And there are other ways to contribute by doing things you normally do.

Give direct through local donations

Your one-time financial gift to Austin North Central provides your senior neighbors with transportation that allows them to stay in their own homes. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, most donations to Drive a Senior are tax deductible.
