Meet Dennis. He has been a Volunteer for nearly 2 years. He was recently chosen as our 1st Volunteer Driver of the Quarter!! We are so thankful for him and all he does for VTC!
This is what Dennis has to say about being a Volunteer
I enjoy driving for Volunteer Transportation for so many reasons. I encourage you to consider volunteer driving with Volunteer Transportation.
I get to help people. One of the biggest problems in Oswego County is Transportation; how do people get to medical appointments, to visits, or to their job? I get to be part of the solution; I take them to medical appointments, or to visits, or to their job. It feels good helping people.
I get to meet new people. The people are friendly and appreciative, and I enjoy driving them. Volunteer driving feels more like visiting friends and taking them for a drive.
I get to see new places. Oswego County is beautiful, and without Volunteer Transportation I probably would never have seen many of the beautiful scenery and communities surrounding us.
I get to set my own schedule. I let Volunteer Transportation know what hours that I want to drive, and I let them know if I want to drive few miles or a lot of miles, and we work out the drives. Local drives only? Sure? Daylight driving only? Sure. One day a week? Sure. Five days a week? Sure. I love the flexibility.
I get to make a little spending money. Volunteer Transportation reimburses me "per mile". The miles add up to a nice reimbursement, and it is not taxable, and it never counts against my Social Security.
Driving for Volunteer Transportation is a great source of extra income while meeting people and seeing the beautiful sites of our county, on a schedule that works for me. What could be better?
I am happy to drive for Volunteer Transportation, and I am proud to be helping others by being a volunteer driver. I highly recommend Volunteer Transportation. I hope you enjoy volunteer driving as much as I do.
