Shepherd’s Center of McLean-Arlington-Falls Church (SCMAFC), an all-volunteer organization, is seeking additional volunteers to support its mission of providing free transportation to seniors for medical and dental appointments or run errands to grocery stores and pharmacies.
The center is an all-volunteer non-profit organization [501(c)(3)] that has been operating since 2006.
The total number of rides provided in 2022 is expected to exceed 2,500, but to fully respond to recent increases in the number of requests, there is a need for more volunteers to join the current team of 60 volunteer drivers.
“Of the rides provided, roughly 75% are medically related, 25% grocery, and 1% for handy helper needs,” said Tom Callanen, Board Chair.
For volunteers there is no minimum commitment. Volunteers are free to choose how often and when they drive.For detailed information or to apply, please visit the center’s website https://scmafc.org/volunteer or call (703) 506-2199 and leave a message.
