Volunteer Duties:

Transportation volunteers deliver clients to and from medical appointments and pharmacies (up to ten miles from the client’s home, one way). Choose one weekday or more in a region of Pinellas County. Earliest client pickup begins at 8:45 for a 9:30 appointment, and trips must be completed by 4pm for safety reasons.

  • Optional: CPR/First Aid certification (Neighborly will provide this at no charge to volunteers 2x a year)

  • Vehicle must be at most 15 years old or younger (the model year should be 2006 or newer)
  • Must seat four or more passengers including the driver
  • Must be a 4-door car, truck, or minivan
  • Must have the driver’s name on the vehicle’s insurance, however, the driver’s name does not need to be on the registration of the vehicle
