Driving

Event Driver

Time spent out of the house, surrounded by friends and celebration, is transformative for our elders! And our volunteer drivers make it possible, providing safe and comfortable transportation to and from Little Brothers’ parties or events. First, get to know each other during the ride. Then share conversation and lunch, and dance to live music before dropping elders back off at home. 5 hours

Vacation Driver

From June through September, elders escape the city for three-night, four-day getaways to Audrey’s House to kick back and enjoy. 

Pick elders up from home on Monday mornings and drop them off at Little Brothers’ building to depart for adventure and relaxation. Or pick elders up from Little Brothers on Thursday afternoon to drop them off at home and hear about their vacation tales and memories. 2 hours

Intergenerational Events

Help facilitate connections between our elders and students from kindergarten to college. Provide transportation to and from an intergenerational event. Elders get to share their life experiences and engage in collaborative or new activities, and each person learns from each other, strengthening sense of community. 4 hours

Share friendship on Thanksgiving Day!

The holidays can feel especially lonely for elders living without support from family or friends.

On Thanksgiving Day, we throw three parties across the city, and our caring volunteers deliver turkey dinners and other goodies during in-home visits. This way, no elder is alone on a day meant for togetherness. Your generous support makes our work possible!
