Volunteer driver program provides service in the Similkameen

Volunteer service provides rides to medical appointments, etc. for Similkameen residents

Do you need a ride?

The Volunteer Services Program, funded through the Interior Health Authority, continues to provide an important service to the community. Susan Kellar is the coordinator. Susan recruits, orientates, and organizes volunteer drivers for those needing transportation for local medical appointments, and rides for grocery shopping and other activities necessary for health and well-being. This program also provides transportation to specialist and surgical appointments in Penticton, Summerland and Kelowna. Much thanks go out to our volunteers who provide many hours of service helping others!

Meals on wheels program

Would you like a noon hour meal delivered right to your door?

The Meals on Wheels program is also organized by Susan Kellar. They have a dedicated group of volunteers who help to box up meals and deliver them to folks who are ill or unable to cook for themselves. The volunteers deliver 12 or more meals three times a week. Again, a big thank you goes out to these dedicated people!

The program is always looking for volunteers. Availability and volunteering time is totally up to the volunteer. Call Susan to arrange for a volunteer drive, a noon hour meal or to inquire about volunteering. 250-499-2352, from  8:00 a.m .to 12:00 noon, Monday to Friday.
