The good deed you do today may ben­e­fit you or some­one you love at the least expected time. And if you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a bet­ter place. And, after all, isn’t that what life is all about?

SCC LogoThe Shepherd’s Cen­ter of Chester­field is a non-​profit, inter-​faith orga­ni­za­tion of senior adults who donate their time, tal­ents, pro­fes­sional exper­tise, auto­mo­biles, gaso­line, and other resources to help other senior adults remain inde­pen­dent in their own homes. It was estab­lished in August 2001 with the mis­sion to enrich the lives of adults 50 and bet­ter by offer­ing vol­un­teer oppor­tu­ni­ties for com­mu­nity ser­vice and life­long learn­ing and to help them remain active and inde­pen­dent. Par­tic­i­pants in our pro­grams real­ize they are needed and val­ued and that they can con­tinue to live lives that truly mat­ter through­out their later years.

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 are not enough vol­un­teer dri­vers to serve the grow­ing need. This past year (July 2013 to June 2014), Shep­herds 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.

Becoming a Volunteer Driver

The Shep­herds 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.
