Take Your Kindness and Compassion to the Road!

Volunteer drivers are needed for Sound Generations Transportation program.  Using their own vehicles, volunteer drivers help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to necessary medical appointments. Clients appreciate their improved access to medical care, meaningful interactions with caring volunteers, and increased peace of mind. Unfortunately, the program does not have enough drivers to meet the demand for transportation from vulnerable seniors. 

If you have the “drive” to help others, a clean driving record, and some daytime availability, call (206) 748-7588, email Diana at dianas@soundgenerations.org, or visit  https://soundgenerations.org/get-involved/volunteer/ to find out more.

Meals on Wheels: Through The Eyes of a Service Provider

A man delivers a meal to a Meals on Wheels client

Meals on Wheels brings nutritious frozen meals directly to the homes of qualifying seniors who have difficulty shopping or preparing food. Our friendly staff and volunteers put care into their work: from the delivery drivers who know each customer by name to the customer service representative who gives personal attention while taking orders.

Watch the video below to see what it’s like to be a Sound Generations’ Meals on Wheels’ driver. Julian Montgomery speaks about the multiple roles he wears and the amazing friendships that have been built over the past six years.

Being a driver for our program is so much more than transporting meals. Julian sees himself as a therapist, counselor, friend, and a family member for his clients as well.
