Volunteer driving programs operate all over Alberta. It’s easier than you might think – drivers often get paid mileage or fuel costs and you can use your own vehicle and insurance (just let your insurance company know).

If you have even a few hours each week, being a volunteer driver for someone’s grandpa feels really good. Find a contact to volunteer in your community, or simply reach out and lend a hand to a senior in your neighbourhood.
