A Fun Caledon Volunteer Experience!

Steering Wheel
Written by Patti Foley

HomeJames Caledon enters its tenth year with a record number of 19 nights of operation on its calendar beginning with Lobsterfest in Bolton on Saturday, May 27th, followed by the Cheers Caledon! Craft Beer and Cider Festival on Friday, June 16th, Caledon Day at the Town Hall Civic Campus on Saturday June 17th,  and the annual Wines of the World celebration in Palgrave on Saturday, June 24th.

HomeJames will provide free dedicated driver services delivering motorists and their passengers safely home and avoiding the risks of potentially grievous consequences associated with impaired driving.

Providing this service will require an average of 24 drivers and navigators every night. And so, we begin our annual appeal for volunteers.

HomeJames operations are supported by a new, people friendly computerized, volunteer registration program, a more robust “request a ride” method now accepting both telephone and smart-phone app requests and a new, made-in-Canada dispatch system which keeps minute by minute tabs on every HomeJames vehicle to ensure prompt, efficient and effective responses from drivers asking for a safe ride home in their own vehicle.

Spring events begin at 8:00 pm and are completed before midnight. And, best of all, HomeJames veterans will tell you its FUN!

We’re inviting volunteers to register at Homejames-caledon.ca or by calling 905-951-9000
