Fearrington Cares Volunteer Drivers
Check with Fearrington Cares for volunteer drivers who provide limited transportation (within a 25-mile radius) for specific needs, such as bank deposits and check cashing; CPA or lawyer visits; medical services including but not limited to doctors, therapists, and dentists; grocery shopping or grocery pick up; short-term mail pickup; meal pick up and delivery within the Village; medical equipment pick up from Fearrington Cares, and limited rides (1 per wk.) to Fearrington Cares scheduled events.
New Beginning in 2020
Fearrington Cares volunteers will take villagers to the grocery store, the bank, an attorney or to a medical appointment. Our services are well utilized and the increasing number of requests is challenging our drivers many weeks of the year. Beginning in 2020, we have 2 important requests of those we assist: we ask that grocery shopping be completed in 90 minutes and going forward we can no longer provide either next day, or same day rides. Ride requests for medical appointments may be made as much as 2 weeks in advance; please call the Center with no less than 2 days’ notice to request transportation assistance from our volunteers.
