Volunteer Driver Recognition Program, Oct 23
The Volunteer Driver Program of Anoka County uses volunteers who generously give of their time and vehicle to provide rides to veterans and other older residents of Anoka County to Veterans Administration clinics and other medical appointments in and around the Twin Cities.

 

The Anoka County Volunteer Transportation Program provides rides to and from medical, dental, and appointments with social services for seniors (60+) and clients receiving services from Anoka County. Medical and dental trips may be made throughout the metro area while appointments with social services must remain within Anoka County.

 

Reservations can be made by calling 763-422-7087 Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. until Noon.  Your request must be received by Noon on Wednesday of the week prior to your appointment. Rides are provided Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

 

There is no charge for this service, however, donations to the Volunteer Transportation program are accepted. Suggested donations are $5.00 for trips within Anoka County and $10.00 for trips outside of Anoka County. A donation is not required to receive a ride.

 

Volunteer Drivers Needed

Volunteer drivers pickup clients, take them to their appointment, and bring them home.
