Volunteer to drive seniors to doctors

Volunteers are urgently needed to drive the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Shuttle. Solely driven by volunteers, the van picks up seniors at their homes and brings them anywhere they need to go in the community including doctor’s offices, grocery stores and the Senior Center. Volunteers choose which four-hour shift they wish to drive but don’t have to stick to the same schedule every week. No lifting or bearing of weight is involved and drivers do not need a special driver’s license. Volunteer drivers must be over 25 years old, hold a valid driver’s license, and have no at-fault accidents during the past three years.

For more information, please call Senior Shuttles Manager Art Cook at 206-727-6262 or apply online at
