Have you thought about giving back to your community?  Join 80+ volunteers, retired and full time workers who MAKE time to help those in need.  They shouldn't have all the fun!  You limit when and how much you volunteer.




We were formed in 2010 to provide assistance to area residents to help them stay in their homes.  We are an all-volunteer organization that provides transportation and other services without charge to those in need.  Our focus has always been "neighbors helping neighbors".​​


The number of requests for trips continues to increase.  Last month we provided over 290 trips.


If you've ever thought about volunteering for GVSS, now is a really good time for us to talk.

Welcome

GVSS has been providing services to Grimes area residents since February 2011.  Since then we have provided more than 6,500 trips (including over 1,960 to the Grimes Senior Meal Site), driven over 121,000 miles and contributed over 20,300 hours of service to organize and provide assistance to residents of the community.

GVSS has over 190 clients and over 85 volunteers providing services. 


Because of outstanding community support, we have grown tremendously since 2011.  We do not employ any staff but are an all-volunteer organization.  We continue to need additional volunteers.  If you are interested, please contact our office at 515-986-5355.
