CarePool’s success depends on community support! Volunteering with CarePool is a flexible opportunity, Volunteers review and accept rides online, committing only to rides that are convenient for their schedules. Volunteers also enjoy socializing with their passengers as they provide this essential service.

Volunteer Orientations are held on the third Thursday of each month at 3pm at Whistlestop’s Active Aging Center. If you are interested in volunteering, please call Kathryn at 415-456-9062 ex 103 or email
