CREST looking for volunteer drivers

CREST is looking for individuals who enjoy driving and have a desire to help people keep their medical appointments, go to the grocery store, attend social engagements and run errands. CREST provides transportation to residents of Martin County who, for a variety of reasons, do not drive or cannot drive any longer. CREST volunteers take those in need to local engagements as well as to out-of-town medical appointments where the volunteer is given a gas card to help with their expenses. Those interested in helping may call the CREST office at (507) 235-3833 and ask for a volunteer application.
