Volunteer drivers needed to aid Del Mar seniors who no longer drive

Looking for a volunteer job that allows you to serve as much and as long as you want, and is hugely rewarding?

Del Mar Community Connections is seeking volunteer drivers to provide rides to medical or other health care appointments in the nearby area for Del Mar seniors who no longer drive.

Volunteer drivers use their own cars. They register in a system that alerts them by email when rides are needed, and they volunteer only for trips that are convenient for them. Participants say both seniors and volunteers find joy in their shared experience.

To sign up as a volunteer driver, contact DMCC at 858 792-7565 or

For the past 15 years Del Mar Community Connections has provided services for seniors, including van pick-up for rides to shopping centers, fitness opportunities, computer tutoring, a travel club, book club, mahjong and social events.
