Holiday Cheer

Season’s greetings!  Instead of composing our own holiday message for all of you, we thought we’d share a couple of the thoughtful cards we’ve received from appreciative clients.

This first card was received from 89-year-old Jean A.:

It reads, "Many thanks to each and every one of you for the
wonderful service.  It is appreciated so very much."
The front features an adorable penguin.

This second card arrived with a tasty box of chocolates for our staff:

This card features the dove, the
universal symbol for peace.
It reads, "Thank you for your kind help this past year -- for
the invaluable services you provide.  All the best to you
and blessings in the New Year."

Let us all keep the holiday spirit alive through our compassion, generosity, hope, and love during this special time of year!

Luncheon Recap

Last year, whether driving their own vehicles or agency vans, volunteers from Senior Services’ Transportation Program covered over 568,255 miles and donated 55,444 hours of their time. After so much valuable service to our community, it was time to celebrate!

Cindy Zwart, Director, commends volunteers for
their generosity and kindness.
The Transportation Driver Appreciation Luncheon provided the opportunity for us to express our gratitude (once again) for the dedication and contributions of our compassionate volunteers. As our drivers from throughout King County gathered together, they built community with one another, recognized their collective accomplishments, and reinforced their commitment to helping local seniors.
Joy Kamstra receives recognition for
her impressive 25 years as a volunteer driver.
Cindy Zwart, Transportation Program Director, opened up the event by speaking about random acts of kindness, or "selfless acts performed by a person wishing to either assist or cheer up an individual person." She informed the volunteer drivers, "Whether it be simply holding the door open for a slow-moving client who uses a walker to get around, taking the time to listen to the stories of a senior who is homebound and isolated, or making extra stops at a pharmacy or grocery store, just being there to offer a helping hand, friendly conversation, or moral support means the world to our clients."

Jack Langlais proudly displays his door prize.
After Cindy's heartfelt reflection, we honored drivers celebrating milestone anniversaries. Volunteers who’d been with the program for 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years were presented with tokens of appreciation, allowing us to recognize their outstanding service and lasting positive impact. Door prizes were given to lucky drivers, helping create an atmosphere of anticipation and excitement.

All in all, it was a memorable and uplifting occasion—one clearly embedded with the themes of celebration, appreciation, and inspiration.

We’d like to thank the following sponsors who helped made this successful event possible: Garlic Jim’s, Walgreen’s, Office Depot, Seattle Chocolates, Vince’s Italian Restaurant and Pizza, Highline Medical Center, Ivar’s Seafood Restaurant, PCC Natural Markets, Starbucks, Washington Dental Service, QFC, Regence, Trident Seafood, Tim Cascade Snacks, Snoqualmie Casino, Virginia Mason Hospital and Medical Center, Donald and Teresa Benedict, Tulalip Casino, and Amtrak. Their support reminds us that our volunteers deserve the very best!
Who wouldn't be inspired by this bunch of
friendly, caring volunteers?!

Why They Volunteer

Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds with a wide diversity of life experiences. Not only do we enjoy hearing more about who they are, but we also appreciate the assortment of reasons that explain why they’re here. The following are some of the stories that drivers from both the Volunteer Transportation and Hyde Shuttle programs have shared with us:
    "These services are lifelines for people. If these clients didn’t get out and about, they might vegetate mentally and physically.  It's a valuable service, and I wanted to be a part of it."

    "I just wanted something helpful to do to fill my time during retirement."

    "I am lucky because I currently have good health and fairly good physical capabilities (knock on wood!). I wanted to help others who may not have the same abilities; I don’t want to take them for granted."

    "My mother is 90-years-old and lives in Detroit. Because I’m not able to help her out with her daily routines and activities, I wanted to serve other seniors here in the Seattle area."

    "My wife works in a hospital and noticed that clients who had 15-minute radiation appointments often had to take over 5 hours of their time to get to and from the medical facility. I wanted to help out so that people wouldn’t have to wait so long."

    "I knew that I’d be working with inspiring people. I hope that I’m as determined as they are when I’m older."

    "My parents have both passed away. I’m volunteering in their honor."

Regardless of what initially compelled them to volunteer,  we hope that they discover more and more reasons to keep driving, week after week and year after year.

At a recent meeting, a Hyde Shuttle Volunteer Driver made the following statement: "Driving the shuttle provides the best appreciation I've ever gotten after 35 years of working for wages.  The thanks the clients give me is way better pay than working for money!"

On that note, let us express our gratitude for all of our amazing volunteers. May you all realize the incredible value of the gift of your time. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Volunteer Driving: A Family Affair

The driving team strikes a pose.
Volunteer Sara C. knows the powerful impact that helping others can have on a person’s life, and she recognizes that an ethic of service is developed at a very young age.  She remembers volunteering with her mother in nursing homes during her early childhood—at a time when very few other experiences were implanted in her memory.  And now, as she has a family of her own, she hopes to instill this same value of kindness in her own children.

Sara actively includes her two little ones (ages four and almost-two) in the rides that she provides through Volunteer Transportation.  They may not be old enough to contribute to the tasks at hand, but she knows that they are gaining something in the process.  Sara says, “I really hope they learn how important volunteering is.  I want them to realize that, throughout their lifetime, they’ll meet many people who have different needs.  Since we have the ability to help, it’s important for us to do so.”

This lesson is one that Sara takes to heart as well.  Because she isn’t able to assist her own grandmother, who is 93-years-old and far away in Saint Louis, she values the opportunity to help other seniors on King County’s Eastside.  This comes full circle with the clients she drives.  Many passengers have expressed that they love spending time with Sara and her children because they have very limited opportunities to see their own grandchildren or great-grandchildren.

She remembers one particular passenger, whom she describes as “the sweetest lady-- but very lonely,” who instantly developed a bond with her son.  Sara explains, “Her face literally lit up when she saw him.”  Sara also recalls a time when her daughter was so taken by a particular passenger that she continued to ask for her by name-- long after the ride was over.  These intergenerational connections are very special.

Sara admits, though, that including young children in serving as a Volunteer Driver can be a bit intimidating.  “At first, it was daunting,” Sara says.  “I wondered: What will happen if the kids start screaming?  Will they be bored?  Will they get used to it?”  Her worries were soon lifted, and she discovered that all it requires is a bit of patience and preparation.  She now packs snacks, toys, and games that help make medical waiting rooms more entertaining, and she has also learned how to keep an arm free for the client while keeping her little ones in a front pack, stroller, or at hand-holding distance.

Volunteering is clearly a win-win-win situation for Sara, her family, and the clients of Volunteer Transportation.  On an individual level, she speaks about gaining humility, lots of incredible knowledge about the area’s history (via stories that passengers share with her), and a better understanding/appreciation of aging.  Her son and daughter acquire firsthand experience with helping others, and clients of the program find it enriching to spend time with amusing children who brighten up their days.  Collectively, they make friends of all ages.

Volunteer Transportation Client Spotlight: Mary Durante

When 80-year-old Mary Durante walks past her car parked in her garage, she pats it and tells it,  “You’re a good car.  It’s not your fault.”  She knows that this vehicle will continue to stay in the same spot, as she is no longer able to take it on any outings or errands.

For Mary, aging has been a process of letting go.  “I used to drive everywhere.  I used to be able to walk all over,” she says as she shares openly about losing her independence and adjusting to the limitations of her older self.

The process of “letting go” has also included a role reversal for Mary.  She has had to make the difficult transition from being the “helper” to the “helped.”  Mary once filled all her time with helping others.  In addition to raising five children, she worked as both a paramedic and high school special education teacher.  She was dedicated to volunteer work for the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and office within her church.  She also served as the caretaker for many friends and family members who’d fallen ill, attending to them in their most vulnerable moments. 

Yet, Mary now spends a lot of her week receiving help.  She has learned to accept support from a variety of people-- including her volunteer drivers from Volunteer Transportation.  She has become quite the unofficial spokesperson for the program and uses any opportunity that she can to tell others about it.  “Without this service, I’d truly be up a creek without a paddle.  It’s a Godsend,” she says.

Mary also enjoys the connections that she has made with her volunteer drivers.  She explains, “They’re like old friends.  If I don’t see a driver for a while, I wonder if something had happened to him or her.  I was concerned about one of the drivers recently, and I found out that he had been sick.  I was happy to hear when he was well again.”  She also adds that she doesn’t get out of the house much and enjoys the opportunity to take off for new scenery.

Growing older is never an easy process, but Mary has attempted to make the best of it by keeping a positive attitude.  She uses resources that are available to assist her and is grateful that Volunteer Transportation can lighten her load as she continues on her journey.

**Postscript: An article featuring Mary Durante and Ron Vandenberg (last week's "Volunteer in the Limelight") can be found here in the October edition of Northwest Primetime.:

Volunteer in the Limelight: Ron Vandenberg

Ron Vandenberg jokingly says that serving as a Volunteer Transportation driver “keeps me out of trouble!”  He retired 15 years ago after a lengthy career in construction and likes to keep busy.  The rides that he has given for the program have ranged from taking a client to an appointment that was just 1.5 blocks away from his home to driving over 100 miles in a trip that spanned multiple cities.

Passengers in Ron’s car may feel that its scent is reminiscent of a bakery.  That’s because Ron estimates that he delivers approximately 700 to 800 loaves of bread per month as he volunteers for various homeless outreach programs, shelters, or the St. Vincent de Paul. 

Yet, sandwiches and loaves of bread are not very interactive, and Ron greatly values the connections he has made with clients of the Volunteer Transportation program.  He loves “talking to them and learning from them.”  He is willing to drive to any location and doesn’t mind taking on rides for appointments that will last a few hours. 

Ron is uncertain what he’d be doing if he weren’t driving with Volunteer Transportation each week (“probably wasting time on the computer!” he exclaims), but he knows that it is time well spent.  I’m certain that all of his Federal Way passengers would agree!

Hyde Shuttle Client Spotlight: Jerry Carriveau

Jerry Carriveau reports that technology is in his DNA.  He was very involved with amateur radio for many years, and he now slides his fingers through iPhone apps at a speed that would put most teenagers to shame.  Jerry is always eager to learn, and it is clear that his endless curiosity has kept him current with society’s technological advances as times have changed.

Jerry has been blind essentially since birth, yet this has never limited his rich potential.  After having studied economics and some law, he received his MA in Public Administration at the University of Washington.  His lifelong learning has also allowed him to master many tasks, such as fixing faucets and gadgets, without having any vision to assist him.

Each week, Jerry takes the Hyde Shuttle to the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center to participate in two separate groups: the Cracker Barrel Group (which he describes as a “loosey goosey, informal group to talk about whatever comes up”) and the Current Events Group (for which participants bring in articles to share and discuss with one another).  He also stays for the Senior Center’s lunch program and is so popular that it is often difficult to find a seat near him.  He is constantly surrounded by folks eager to converse with him, as he usually has many interesting things to say.

Jerry is not the type of person who would ever become disengaged from the world.  In fact, it is his high level of engagement that defines who Jerry is.  He has a strong thirst for knowledge, and he is also very politically involved.

Without transportation, Jerry would not be able to participate so fully in his community.  He labels the Hyde Shuttle as very “useful and reliable.”  By taking him to activities, it empowers him to keep his active mind at work and share his unique perspectives with others.  Jerry is much, much more than just a passenger; he is an inspiration to us all.

Hyde Shuttles rely on important volunteer drivers to offer this valuable service to our community.  Drivers do not need a special license and receive free training.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Hilary ( or 206-748-7588).  Let’s drive the distance to ensure that local elderly residents can journey onward into unlimited possibilities!

Farewell to Shelani

Shelani is off for new adventures.

Many volunteers and clients have gotten to know Shelani as the “friendly voice on the other side of the phone line” as she has tirelessly coordinated Volunteer Transportation rides for South King County.  Sadly, today (10/19/2012) marks her last day in this role.  Her life path has "steered" her (pun intended!) away from Seattle and on to new adventures elsewhere.

Preparing to begin the next chapter of her life afforded Shelani the opportunity to reflect about her experiences as a Program Coordinator for the past two years.  Here is what she had to say:

What have you enjoyed most about your role at Volunteer Transportation?
I have really enjoyed feeling like the job I do makes a difference in the lives of others. I really enjoy getting to talk to clients on Friday and telling them who their driver is. They are so grateful and happy for our service, and that is a good feeling. I have also enjoyed getting to know my volunteers. I have been fortunate to work with wonderful colleagues who taught me a lot, and I will miss them dearly.

What has been a challenge for you?
The challenge was having to tell client’s that sometimes we don’t have enough volunteers to do the rides. That’s the hardest part of this job.

What has been most memorable for you?
My most memorable moments have been talking to various clients about their lives and learning about their past. It’s so fascinating to hear the life stories of people.

Is there any message you’d like to leave for the program’s staff, clients, or volunteers?
I want to thank Cindy [Senior Services' Transportation Director] and all my colleagues, as well as the wonderful volunteers I got to work with. The connections I made with these individuals taught me so much, and I feel very lucky to have worked with such caring individuals. I will take the lessons I learned with me wherever I go.

We will miss Shelani very much, but we wish her the best of luck with all of her future endeavors.  Here’s hoping that her life journey is filled with meaningful "rides!"

Volunteer Reflection: French Pastries and Friendship

By Joyce Foy, Kirkland Driver

Taking time to appreciate the moment.
Volunteer driving for Senior Services has been quite an experience, and one ride in particular will stay with me forever.

I picked Frances up in Kirkland and drove her to her scheduled doctor appointment.  On the way home she asked if I would mind if we swung by a new French bakery in town.

It was one of “those days” for me – my to-do list was a mile long and my first thought was, “No way, I just don’t have the time.”  But then I decided, “Well, it’s only a couple of miles out of the way, how long could it take?”

When we arrived at the bakery I parked the car and helped her into the store with her walker.  Instead of getting something to go, as I had assumed she would, she ordered a French pastry and coffee and offered to buy me whatever I wanted.

Uh oh, this wasn’t going to be a real quick stop.  I began to mentally reschedule my plans for the day.

The bakery was packed and all seats were taken.  Even though Frances was using a walker, no one volunteered a seat.  Wondering how she could eat balancing French pastry, coffee and a walker, we decided to go outside where there were some chairs set up on the sidewalk.  We scooted our chairs up to a retaining wall which became our makeshift table.

Frances was amazing.  She was so appreciative of everything.  It was a sunny but cold day.  Frances saw the sunshine.  She remarked on the birds eating nearby and the flowers that were so pretty, the delicious pastry, and the great coffee.  She never mentioned the goose bumps we were both experiencing from the chilly temperature or the fact that no one offered her a seat inside.

We sat and talked and enjoyed each others’ company.  My to-do list wouldn’t get done, but it didn’t seem to matter much now.  Frances was so happy just to be out and doing something new, and I was feeling quite blessed to be in the company of someone so positive.

At last, it was time to go.  She looked at me with tears in her eyes and said, “I can’t thank you enough.  This meant the world to me.  Tomorrow I will turn 92, and this is my birthday celebration.”

My to-do list lost all its importance and I hugged my new friend.

Volunteer in the Limelight: Kiri Igloi

Kiri Igloi is an energetic woman.  Active and sharp, she gardens, participates in several reading clubs, and spends time with her daughters.  But she really gets her kicks by driving seniors to medical appointments with the Volunteer Transportation Program.

A retired flight attendant, Kiri says she missed the “get-up-and-go” of flying around the country when she stopped working five years ago.  Suddenly, there didn’t seem to be much possibility for “new” in her day-to-day life.  Then she found Volunteer Transportation.  

“Volunteer Transportation takes me new places every week,” Kiri says.  “I love driving seniors to new clinics and hospitals, exploring the different neighborhoods around Seattle and the South End.  I’ll do it until I become a customer.”

Kiri is a much-needed member of the program’s South King County volunteer force.  Along with her husband, Karl, she consistently provides rides every Monday and is flexible in being sent wherever she’s needed.  She could be labeled as the Highline area’s “Monday go-to gal.”

South King County Program Coordinator, Shelani Vanniasinkam, describes Kiri as very “friendly and warm.”  She explains, “I get lots of requests to ride with her because clients love Kiri!” 

It is this adventurous outlook, boundless energy, and memorable warmth that make Kiri such an inspirational volunteer.  We know that Kiri’s pathway in life will never be dull, and we are grateful that she’s able to share her gifts as she is “on the go” as a volunteer driver.

Volunteer in the Limelight: Jeanne Luchtel

 Jeanne was shopping for fabric in Bellevue when she noticed a flyer announcing the need for volunteer drivers.  She decided that since she couldn’t take her own mother to the doctor, this opportunity would be the perfect fit.  Sixteen years later, Jeanne’s still hooked.  Once per week, she picks up seniors at their homes, waits with them at their appointments, and then takes them home again.

Yet, there’s something a little different about Jeanne as a volunteer driver.  One might first notice her “luvmydg” license plate, or perhaps one might discover a puppy in the back seat.  That is because, in addition to driving Eastside seniors to their medical appointments, Jeanne trains guide dogs.  She has found that Senior Services’ Transportation Program allows her to combine two of her passions: training guide dogs and helping older adults.  There is often a puppy in the car as she drives clients to their appointments.

“The people I meet are so grateful for a ride, and I’ve never had a senior say no to a dog on a ride,” Jeanne says.  “You really feel like you’re making a difference right then, not sometime down the line.  You can see it on their faces.”

Outside of these volunteer roles, Jeanne is a busy woman.  She has teenage grandkids, loves to sew, and spends quite a bit of her time traveling. With so many interests and activities, it would be easy for Jeanne to become “dog-tired.”  However, she keeps up with it all with steadfast dedication and vigor.  It is clear that Jeanne does not “lead a dog’s life!”

Pink Purses and Open Doors

The following was recounted by a regular, long-term client of the Volunteer Transportation program:

“There’s one particular driver who takes me to many of my appointments.  Each time he picks me up at my home, he consistently insists on carrying my purse as he helps me get down the driveway and into the car.  I usually have a bright pink purse that is hard to miss.  Unfailingly, he poses and asks me teasingly, ‘Am I color-coordinated?’  Every single time, I tell him, ‘You’re always color-coordinated!’  It’s our ongoing joke as he opens the car door for me.” 

I like the imagery that this story produces: a senior being gently escorted as she leaves her home, a volunteer and client laughing together, and a driver kindly opening the car door for his fragile passenger.  “Opening doors” is an apt metaphor for this program.  We strive to help seniors get out and about-- and hope to make them laugh in the process (pink purses and color coordination are not required!).

**Please note: We are always on the lookout for great stories from members of the Transportation Program community.  Please send any ideas to

Volunteer in the Limelight: Harry Tipple

One could say that Hyde Shuttle Volunteer Driver Harry Tipple is a “professional” volunteer.  In addition to serving as a volunteer shuttle driver for three shifts per week, he also spends his “free” time at the Homeward Pet Adoption Center and Lake City Way Food Bank.  Moreover, he somehow manages to find time to support his four grandsons and will most certainly cheer them on at numerous youth soccer games this fall.

Yet, even with so much going on in his life, Harry is incredibly focused.  As I recently rode along with Harry during one of his shifts, it was clear that he was a natural at driving the shuttle.  Perhaps from his past experiences driving motor homes, he is cautious and alert as he maneuvers the van through various obstacles that one might encounter with such a large vehicle.  He notes that he definitely needs to have a “heightened awareness” as he drives, yet he appreciates this challenge.  He always enjoys learning something new and admits to having a “boys with toys” attitude with certain pieces of equipment on the van (such as the wheelchair lift). 

On top of being careful and attentive, Harry manages to remain caring and interactive as he drives.  He loves learning about the passengers and often finds himself reflecting on their lives: how one rider is able to seem so young at 85 years of age, how another can stay so up-to-date with modern technology, or even what the clients of the program would do if this service were not available to them.  Harry is certain that it’s the people that keep him coming back week after week, and it is obvious that the passengers enjoy spending time with him as well.

Thus, Harry is well-suited as a Volunteer Hyde Shuttle Driver, and it is quite appropriate and advantageous that he has chosen to add this role to his volunteer "career!"

The End of a Legacy: Volunteer Shuttle Driver Retires

By Brady Wright

Some say all good things come to an end, but those milestones are worth noting when they go by.  We are blessed to have had so many years of service and dedication from Gene Moon, our very first volunteer driver for the Hyde Shuttle in Des Moines, especially since Gene has decided to retire this month.  It’s not often that we can celebrate a first, but Gene was not only the first volunteer driver for the Des Moines/ Normandy Park Hyde Shuttle, he was the first volunteer driver in the entire system.
Gene has been an indispensable driver for nearly 15 years.

Gene’s friendly face and gentlemanly manner has been an anchor for riders in our community for almost fifteen years!  For some time now, his regular Wednesday afternoon van has been filled with folks who really look forward to seeing his smiling face, rain or shine.  Gene is known for making sure that every rider gets the best experience, always stepping out to greet folks and offer an arm or handshake.  He is one of the best standard-bearers of our service and to say that he will be missed is a huge understatement. 

Gene has plenty to keep him busy.  He has many hobbies, including hot rod cars, and you can see that he spends as much care on them as he does on each and every rider!  Gene and his wife, Kaylene, will have plenty to do with their time and we know we’ll see them at the Activity Center quite often.  At an Appreciation Lunch in October, the Center was filled with Gene’s friends and co-workers and he was given the Shining Star award by Cindy Zwart, the director of the Transportation Department of Senior Services!

With Gene taking it easy, we now have a terrific opportunity for the next superstar volunteer to step up in Des Moines.  Driving for the Hyde Shuttle is a great way to give back to the community and help your friends and neighbors get to and from the places they want to go!  As Gene can tell you, it’s only a few hours a week, and all the training is provided.  No special license is needed and all you have to do is call Brady Wright at the Activity Center to apply at 206-878-2066.  You can email direct to if you have any questions.  We currently need at least two drivers, but more would help this wonderful service to expand even more!

Firsthand Testimonials: Outreach on the Road

Our interactive display

By Hilary Case

On the constant quest to meet the volunteer needs of the Transportation Program, my role as Recruitment and Outreach Coordinator can lead me to a variety of unique settings throughout King County.  This week, it took me to the Burien Farmers’ Market.  Although the chilly temperatures had my spirits a bit low, they were soon lifted as I met proponents of the program.  Clients and volunteers alike surfaced to remind me of what it’s all about.

One pair of women, who informed me that they use both the Hyde Shuttle and Volunteer Transportation services, came to shake my hand and thank me for being a part of such an “important and helpful program.”  I also had the opportunity to talk with current volunteers, who explained why they find giving rides to be so gratifying.  Larry Moormeier, who has served with Volunteer Transportation for over ten years, shared about recently giving a ride to an inspiring 99-year-old client.  It was easy to promote these volunteer opportunities after unexpectedly receiving such positive feedback from people who know them well.
Larry Moormeier,
“incognito” Volunteer Transportation driver,
out and about at the Burien Farmers' Market

All in all, it was a successful day.  I left with a warm and happy heart.

Volunteer in the Limelight: Deeon Kuspert

When Deeon Kuspert began her role as a volunteer driver, a gallon of gas cost $1.09; movie tickets cost $2.75; and a US postage stamp cost 22 cents.  28 years later, a lot has changed…. But Deeon is still serving with Senior Services’ Volunteer Transportation program!

Deeon can’t think of anything she’d rather do than drive local seniors to their appointments.  Over the years, she has built up quite the camaraderie with people she drives.  Each week, Deeon picks up Covington/Maple Valley clients at their homes and drives them to the doctor. 

Deeon loves the flexibility of the program; every year, she spends two months in Arizona and resumes volunteering when she returns to Covington/Maple Valley.  She also gets to choose the days and times she volunteers, and where she wants to drive. 

We are glad that Deeon has stuck with the program for so long and commend her for the huge difference she has made in her community.  A lot may have happened in our world during Deeon’s time with Volunteer Transportation, but her positive impact has remained consistent throughout these 28 years.
