Medical Transportation Services
We offer transportation to medical appointments in addition to grocery store and pharmacy trips. Our service can go as far as Bellingham to the north and Seattle to the south.
Our team also provides assistance for light housekeeping, errands, and yard work.
All services are based on the availability of volunteers. The services provided in this program are partially funded by government funding and through donations. To learn more about donating or becoming a driver, contact the Director Pat Weekley at 360-678-3373, 360-321-1600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Interested in Driving? Want To Help Others?
The Volunteer Services program needs more team members. More and more seniors are turning to us for help; unfortunately, we do not have enough volunteers to meet their needs.
If you like to drive, and own a car, and enjoy meeting new people then this is the volunteer program for you! Through volunteering, you will establish new friends, learn more about the the beautiful island and enjoy giving back.
Please contact Pat Weekley, the Director, at the contact information listed above.

I’m “Susan.” I’m totally deaf and have been for 20 years. I’m 62 and active. My husband is also active. We walk, swim, and dance. I love swaying in his arms. My sight is failing rapidly and I can’t drive anymore. I used to drive him to the regular medical appointments he needs but now I can’t. We needed help. Recently, we found the Medical Transportation program at ISR and now volunteer drivers take us. Because of them, we don’t have to move into the city and lose our home. On the last trip, my husband told the driver, “We couldn’t do this without you.” The driver smiled and answered, “I know,” that’s why I do it. I believe in helping now while I can. Someday, I’ll need someone to drive me.”
