Cancer Society needs volunteers

The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers for its Road to Recovery program. The society is in desperate need of volunteers who can drive cancer patients to and from their treatments, ensuring patients are getting the care they need.

Volunteers can drive as little or as much as their schedule allows during the regular work week as long as they have a good driving record, a valid driver’s license, insurance and a reliable vehicle.
