Free, Accompanied Medical and Grocery/Food Pantry shopping and Pet Transportation
A pool of volunteer drivers donates their time, car, and time to make it possible for seniors 60 and over who do not drive or own a car to get to their critical medical and dental appointments, grocery shopping/food pantries, and veterinary visits for their furbabies.
Should you need that ride to the doctor’s or for grocery shopping, please call the transportation office at (804) 706-6689 between 9 am and 1 pm Monday thru Friday with at least (7) days before the appointment.
The transportation office will schedule a driver. The driver will contact the client to arrange the pickup time, etc. The service is free; however, donations are always greatly appreciated to Shepherd’s Center’s mission.
Handy Hands Services
Changing light bulbs, replacing faucet washers, replacing smoke alarm batteries, replacing faulty electrical receptacles, etc., are good descriptions of light home maintenance for seniors 60 and over who need minor handyhands service. Our volunteer handyhands go into the places only locals are familiar with Chesterfield County and surrounding areas. Visit little known hideouts and avenues that open the mind to what being a local is all about.
Our volunteers do not provide general contractor services, nor do yard work.
A pool of dedicated Handy Hand volunteers donates their time to provide this service, averaging almost three calls a week. If you think our HandyHands can help you, please call the Transportation office at (804) 706-6689. The office will schedule a handyperson to contact you. From discussions with 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.”
