The Shepherd’s Center of Chesterfield is Positively Richmond

Volunteer To Drive!

The Shepherd''s Center has an urgent need again for volunteer drivers for transportation to urgent medical appointments and grocery shopping. As we began the new year, it is important to remember the elderly in the community. The Shepherd's Center of Chesterfield is in urgent need of volunteer drivers to transport older adults to critical doctor appointments, pharmaceutical pick-ups and grocery shopping trips, so they can maintain a more independent lifestyle.

As the older adult population grows in our community there simply aren't enough volunteer drivers to serve the growing need. This past year (July 2013 to June 2014), Shepherd's Center volunteer drivers provided 621 free, accompanied rides to critical medical appointments and grocery shopping and enrolled over 403 senior adults into our programs.

You can help by offering a few hours of your time to provide a ride. The Shepherd's Center of Chesterfield, a non-profit interfaith organization, offers free, accompanied transportation, in-home handyman services, and low-cost classes to adults over 50. Volunteer drivers are desperately needed to continue providing transportation in the area, without new volunteer drivers our clients will be placed on a waiting list for their critical medical and grocery shopping transportation needs. You can make a difference in the community by volunteering only a couple of hours a month! Become a part of this close-knit volunteer community; you may need their help someday, too!

Include The Shepherd’s Center of Chesterfield In Your Estate Planning

Include The Shepherd’s Center of Chesterfield In Your Estate Planning Have you reviewed your long-range financial and estate plans recently? Your will, living trust, retirement plans and other gift and estate planning vehicles can provide an opportunity to support your favorite charitable interests. If you would be interested in making a gift of ongoing significance, these ideas may interest you:

  • A gift included in your will or living trust is one way to establish a lasting legacy.
  • A gift of retirement assets, such as pension plans or IRAs, may allow you to give more than you thought possible, while eliminating taxes that may otherwise largely consume these assets.
  • Consider gifts of life insurance. Gifts of policies or proceeds you may no longer need offer excellent tax benefits.

We sincerely appreciate your interest and support in helping The Shepherd’s Center of Chesterfield enrich the lives of adults 50 and over by providing opportunities for interfaith community service, lifelong learning and assistance in maintaining an independent lifestyle. Please contact Susan McCammon at (804) 706-9198 if you are interested in these ideas.
