WHAT: Drivers are needed for the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program, which helps provide free transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer and who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.
DETAILS: Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their vehicles so patients can receive cancer-related treatments. Drivers also provide encouragement and support. To volunteer, you must have a valid driver’s license, a safe and reliable vehicle and proof of automobile insurance. Drivers must be at least 18 and have a good driving history. They arrange their own schedules and can commit to as many or as few hours as their schedule allows. The American Cancer Society provides free training to drivers and conducts criminal background and driving record checks. Volunteer coordinators also are needed to help schedule rides.
