Driver needed for senior

Our partners at Syntero asked if we could find a driver for a Worthington senior who is legally blind. She would like to go to Meijer monthly for groceries. She would need minimal help at the store and she has her own money to pay. She prefers morning but no specific day of the week. She's also interested in periodic trips to the Community Center if that would work out too. 

If you would like to learn more about helping this community senior, please reach out and we'll connect you with her Syntero case manager.
