My name is David Benet and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Mobility Matters.  I hope my page helps you find and meet new people.  Another way to meet new people is to become a volunteer for Mobility Matters.  I am looking for volunteers that can spare just 3 hours a month to help seniors and veterans get to medical appointments or go grocery shopping.  If you know anyone that might want to become a volunteer please have them contact me at (925) 284-2215 or david@mobilitymatterscc.com.
