Del Mar’s party of the year is back. This exclusive fundraising event will take place on October 7, 2017, so save the date!
DMCC’s handicapped accessible van is available to all Del Mar residents in wheelchairs who could benefit from transportation assistance. It augments two other services in the DMCC transportation program—the weekly “Sprinter” bus service which takes seniors on grocery and other group trips, and the “volunteer driver” service in which a volunteer drives a senior to medical, dental or physical therapy appointments. Arrangements for any or all of DMCC’s transportation services can be made by calling our office at (858)792-7565.
Del Mar Community Connections’ Volunteer Program strives to enrich the lives of our maturing population by providing activities, services and programs to help them remain living in the homes they love. In particular, our team of volunteer drivers occasionally takes 15 minutes to an hour out of their busy day in order to provide personalized transportation to essential appointments for the senior and disabled residents of Del Mar. Working in full partnership with DMCC staff, these volunteers provide an important service. YOU too can be a member of that team! Contact us at (858)792-7565 or email@example.com to learn more.
One Monday every month our “Sprinter” bus takes Del Mar seniors to some of the most beautiful locations in San Diego. Upcoming excursions include a guided tour of the Old Globe Theatre and of the state of the art San Diego Central Library. This is a great opportunity for socializing and getting fresh air. The trips last about three hours, and usually end with a no host lunch and time to socialize. If you are interested in learning more about this activity, and to find out each month when and where the bus will go, please contact the DMCC office at (858)792-7565, or send your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list.
Thanks to all of you who took a few moments to fill out the survey that was included in the May issue of the Sandpiper! The returned surveys will help us to better serve the Del Mar community. If you didn’t get a chance to complete our survey, stop by the DMCC office at 225 9th St between 9 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday, and we will happily provide you with one.
