Do you have a driving desire to help people? Consider becoming a volunteer driver with ITNBluegrass!
ITNBluegrass, a nonprofit senior transportation service and a local affiliate of national nonprofit ITNAmerica, is growing! ITNBluegrass provides safe, affordable, dignified automobile transportation to people 60+ and adults with visual impairments 24/7 anywhere in Fayette and northern Jessamine Counties and Versailles in Woodford County for any reason. Service is “arm-through-arm, door-through-door.”
As a volunteer, you earn mileage credit for every mile you drive that you can accrue in an account for your future transportation needs or donate to someone else to use right now. You also receive a free yearly ITN membership that you can keep for yourself or give away. Every volunteer is covered by volunteer insurance.
You may drive as much or as little as you’d like, on your schedule. Following a two-hour training and background check, you’re ready to go meet some really nice people and hear some interesting stories! To schedule a training or to ask questions, please call Laura at 859-351-0460 or email her at email@example.com. A volunteer driver application is available online at www.itnbluegrass.org.
Volunteer drivers help older adults and those with visual impairments stay connected to families, friends, and activities!
Volunteer drivers are the backbone of an ITN affiliate and help us remain economically sustainable. Volunteers can earn cash for mileage accrued when a passenger is in the vehicle and transportation credits for both occupied and unoccupied mileage. All mileage is accrued at $0.40/mile. There are several options for their mileage credits that drivers may choose: banking it for themselves for the future; donating it to a family member or friend; donating it to the Road Scholarship Fund for low-income riders; or donating it back to ITNBluegrass as a charitable contribution.
Volunteers may drive as little or as often as they like, on their own schedule. Volunteers receive training and undergo background checks. In addition to the cash/credits, volunteers also receive a free membership (value: $50) every year they drive that they may keep for themselves or give to someone else.
