Wellesley Volunteer Drivers Program

WELLESLEY, MASSACHUSETTS - The Wellesley Volunteer Drivers Program of Wellesley, Massachusetts is operated by the Wellesley Council on Aging. They offer rides to local seniors. Since it's inception as a 6 month pilot project running from February 28, 2011 to November 1, 2011; the program has registered 115 seniors as passenger and recruited and trained 30 volunteer drivers, providing 496 rides during 256 hours of service. The success of the program is due in large part to the recruitment of volunteer drivers from the local community. The program has received enough additional funding to continue on into 2012.
