For 24 years, Ellen Sable has volunteered with Drive A Senior – West Austin, not only as a driver but as a powerful force in the board room.
Ellen Sable has been volunteering with the West Austin region of Drive A Senior for almost 25 years, and in that time she’s driven hundreds of homebound seniors to vital medical appointments. This service to Austin’s senior community is just one facet of Ellen’s volunteer impact, but her dedication to enabling older adults to live independently and age in place has directly affected so many individual people that on its own this facet is truly inspiring.
7,800 miles driven. Wow!
Truly passionate about giving back to our community, Ellen is also a member of Congregation Beth Israel where she dedicates her time as a volunteer lay leader and an educator for young people preparing for their bar and bat mitzvah ceremonies, a coming of age ritual for Jewish children. In addition, she works with other interfaith organizations on advocacy and service projects.
