Volunteers Needed for Van Buddies

Open Timeslots


Senior Access utilizes three 14 passenger vans to take our clients on fixed-route trips to their local HEB, Walmart, Target, and other shopping locations. We are looking for volunteer Van Buddies who can assist our Van Drivers in helping clients in and out of our vans, loading and unloading groceries in the van, and carrying the groceries to the client's door. Socializing with the clients is welcome. This person needs to be healthy and somewhat strong. The van is taller than usual cars and it is sometimes difficult to load and unload the groceries. The actual ending time will vary depending on the number of clients riding that day.

Van buddies need to complete the volunteer application and new volunteer training prior to riding on the vans.

All vans leave from our office in Round Rock and leave about 8:30 am and return at about 1:30. 

The ideal volunteer will be able to commit to a specified day each week or each month, for example, every Tuesday or each 2nd Monday of every month.

We follow local guidelines for wearing masks.
