Volunteer Assisted Transportation Stories

“We have had the most wonderful experience, having been driven to the doctor’s office today by your volunteer. I can hardly believe that this act of kindness can be possible. We are a couple of elderly people who have been independent and taking care of ourselves. We are all of 87 years old, and we sure appreciate the fact that you have a service such as this.

"It is so wonderful, I just had to write and tell you all how great this is. In these troubled days, we just don’t see too much of a good thing. My husband had to give up his driving, which we miss so much, but this service is the next best thing, and we are so grateful. We wish you good luck in the future, and may God bless all who volunteer.”
