The last couple of years have presented many challenges for non-profits. As a transportation service, we worked hard to observe safety protocols and do everything in our power to keep people safe from COVID. We were often at the mercy of the current levels of lockdown, frequently having to cancel dozens of rides in a span of a week or two when in high lockdown, and when hospitals and doctors canceled appointments or switched to virtual. When canceled appointments were rescheduled all those rides had to be rebooked.
Like many of our healthcare facilities, we are now struggling to keep up with demand because of an increase in volunteers either testing positive or isolating because they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive. We operate on the side of caution when there is contact because many of our clients are struggling with health issues.
Now that everything is open, people want to resume normal life and thus the demand for rides is increasing. Unfortunately, the shortage of drivers and isolation requirements force us to sometimes turn down, cancel, or reschedule rides.
All this to say, we need your help. We need more volunteer drivers to keep things running smoothly and to make sure those who need transportation have access to it in a timely manner. Drivers are reimbursed $.46/km.
We have been blessed to have so many dedicated and caring volunteers over the years and we are grateful for the time they give. We know when we all work together, we can accomplish great things. We are inviting you to be part of this team of amazing volunteers who change lives one ride at a time. To volunteer, please call 962-3073 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
