Summit Quest, a Rome non-profit serving families facing cancer, is working with The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program to help provide cancer patients with free rides to treatment. Volunteer drivers are needed to donate a few hours of their time each month transporting people from their community to local medical centers. The American Cancer Society screens and trains all volunteer drivers and coordinates the rides for patients. Volunteer drivers must have a valid driver’s license, good driving record, access to a safe and reliable vehicle, computer access, and proof of car insurance. If you like to drive, talk to people, and want a volunteer opportunity with very flexible hours, this is the opportunity to serve you have been looking for! For more information or to volunteer, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org/drive.
