Meet Kellie. She is an awesome Volunteer Driver! She works fulltime and drives for us on her days off as well as before and after her work shift if time allows her to. She is always willing to help and we appreciate her and all she does for our mission. This is what Kellie had to say:
Why I Volunteer? It gives me a sense of self-worth knowing that I have something that others don't and that I can help them to get where they need to go. It helps the community in a major way especially since Oswego County is on the lower economic spectrum. We don't rank very well with a lot of things within the state. I am a community oriented person and always look for ways to help out. VTC is a good program and I feel it is essential for Oswego County, especially with the number of people who don't own vehicles and have a means of transportation. That is why I Volunteer my time.
