Whistlestop’s CarePool program helps older adults get to medical appointments or go grocery shopping. CarePool offers FREE rides to Marin County residents 65 or older and for persons with disabilities. Call the Travel Navigators at 415-454-0902 to request a ride. Our volunteer drivers can offer extra support, such as walking you from your home to the car, as this program provides a unique “door-through-door” service.
CarePool’s success depends on people in the community. Volunteer drivers will accept rides through email, and only commit to rides that are convenient for their schedules. Funds are available to reimburse drivers for mileage. If you are interested in volunteering and have a clean driving record and insurance, please call Laurie at 415-456-9062 x 117 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Providing a few trips a month can make all the difference to a person in need.
