Shepherd’s Center Looking for More Volunteers

Shepherd’s Center of McLean-Arlington-Falls Church is seeking volunteers to help senior citizens get to and from medical and therapy appointments, the pharmacy and grocery store. The mission of the Shepherd’s Center is to give senior citizens free transportation.

The center also needs volunteers willing to visit seniors in their homes and to make phone calls from time to time to let lonely seniors know they have not been forgotten. In many cases, Shepherd’s Center volunteers are the only contacts some seniors have with anyone.

No long term commitment is required and you accept to take someone only when your schedule permits. For more information, call 703-506-2199, email or visit the center’s website at
