American Cancer Society seeking volunteer drivers

The American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers to transport cancer patients to and from their cancer-related treatments. The “Road to Recovery” program helps provide transportation for patients who do not have a ride or are unable to transport themselves.

Volunteers must have a good driving record; a current, valid driver’s license; proof of insurance; completion of the American Cancer Society training course; and must be available Monday through Saturday during the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The training course includes a 15-minute video and a 45-minute “Road To Recovery” course. Volunteers are also subject to a background check.
