The Shepherd’s Center of McLean-Arlington-Falls Church still needs volunteers to help get senior citizens to and from their medical and therapy appointments, the pharmacy and the grocery store.
In calendar year 2013, the center provided slightly over 800 rides for seniors and that number rose to over 1,500 in 2104. According to the center, the number is expected rise again in 2015 and they need more help to match demand for assistance.
Volunteers do not have to commit to long term and can help when their schedule permits. To find out more about the Shepherd’s Center call the Shepherd’s Center number at 703-506-2199.
