Volunteer Opportunities at Samaritan Services

Receptionist

Our receptionists are the “voice” and “face” of Samaritan Services. Our men and women volunteer for two shifts a day, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. We utilize ten receptionists a week plus substitutes. The receptionists answer questions about our organization and schedule “Out of Town” rides and “Meals on Wheels” deliveries for Sun City Center and Kings Point residents.

If you’d like to volunteer as a Receptionist, scroll down to the bottom of the page, fill out, and submit the form.

Dispatcher

Dispatchers volunteer for one shift a day, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (if you have a partner we can split the day into two shifts).  They receive calls from Sun City Center and Kings Point residents seeking transportation within Sun City Center. The dispatcher then calls drivers in cars “A” and “B” to pick-up and deliver ambulatory clients to their destination.

When clients are ready to go home they call the dispatcher to send another car. Number of rides vary from 20 to 40 per day.
