Medical Transportation

A pool of drivers volunteer their time making it possible to get to medical appointments and grocery shopping for those who do not drive, do not have a car or do not have access to public transportation.  Prescriptions can also be picked up on the return trip.

Should you need that ride to the doctor's or for grocery shopping, please call the office at (804) 706-6689 at least four days in advance of the appointment.

The office will schedule a driver. The driver will contact the client to arrange the pickup time, etc. The service is free, however, donations are accepted.

Handy Hands

Go into the places only locals are familiar with. Visit little known hideouts and avenues that open the mind into what being a local is all about.

Changing light bulbs, replacing faucet washers, replacing smoke alarm batteries, replacing faulty electrical receptacles, etc. are good descriptions of light maintenance.

We do not provide general contractor services, nor do our volunteers do yard work.

A pool of Handy Hands volunteers donate their time to provide this service which is averaging almost 3 calls a week.

If you think HandyHands can help you, please call the office at (804) 706-6689. The office will schedule a handyman to

contact you.  From discussions with the you, the handyman will determine the nature of the maintenance and materials required and schedule a time to do the work.

“There is nothing more notable in Socrates than that he found time,
when he was an old man, to learn music and dancing,
and thought it time well spent.”
