Honorable Volunteers Needed for Honored Program!

We are pleased to report that Cindy Zwart, Director of Senior Services’ Transportation Program, recently received a unique recognition from the Washington State Association of Senior Centers.   Cindy was completely unaware of the fact that the group had fabricated a dinner meeting to present her with a Service Recognition Award—using this guise to recognize her work with the Hyde Shuttles.  It was a great surprise when the true purpose of the gathering was revealed as she was presented with a plaque that reads, “For your dedication, service, and contribution in meeting the needs of seniors and disabled in multiple communities.” 

Cindy was humbled by this award but acknowledges that it speaks to the value of the Hyde Shuttles.  Many local seniors and people with disabilities rely on this safe and reliable transportation service for needed socialization, errands, and life sustaining/enriching activities.   The Washington State Association of Senior Centers appreciates the profound impact the Hyde Shuttles have had in communities throughout King County. 

You have the opportunity to be a part of this award-winning program!  Caring and reliable volunteers are urgently needed to drive agency vans in Burien and Des Moines/Normandy Park.  We offer flexible hours and free training in defensive driving and passenger assistance.  You do not need a special driver’s license.   Spread the word!  Help us ensure that our valuable program can continue to meet the transportation needs of seniors and disabled folks in these communities.  Contact Hilary at to find out more or get started.   No surprises here—Hyde Shuttles volunteer drivers make a world of difference!!
