Ashley Simpkins, Assistant Program Director
DMCC is looking for a new part-time van driver to be our Captain of Fun. Paid drivers must be available Wednesdays from 8:30am until 2:00pm with a flexible schedule the remainder of the week. Schedules are provided a month in advance, with additional rides added weekly. Be part of this special organization, and help keep our seniors in the homes they love! Hourly salary, average of 6-8 hours per week. Background check and clean driving record required. If interested, please email us and put “Van Driver” in the subject line.
One of DMCC’s most essential services is the shopping van, designed for healthy, independent seniors who no longer drive. Every Wednesday, the DMCC Grocery Van picks up seniors at their homes, ferries them to CVS, Ralphs, Trader Joes, and Sprouts, then returns them home. Likewise, we schedule a Shopping Van on three Mondays a month so that seniors can shop at brick-and-mortar retail stores located in Encinitas and La Jolla Village.
To take advantage of this service, riders simply need to be enrolled in DMCC’s free Transportation Services. To qualify for enrollment, the rider must be a 60+ City of Del Mar resident who no longer drives, permanently or temporarily. If you’d like to know more and/or begin the application process, we encourage you to call our office or visit our website.
DMCC will host our third annual Champagne and Chocolate Community Appreciation and Volunteer Recognition on Valentine’s Day at 2:30pm in the Del Mar Community Building. We’ll share the love with the Del Mar community and thank our incredible volunteers; we could not continue to provide personalized transportation, run meal programs and activities, and take care of the Del Mar Community Building without them. So, visit 225 9th St on 2/14, and have some chocolate and bubbly on us!
