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, don’t drive or can’t drive any longer. CREST volunteers take those in need to local engagements as a way to assist people and provide companionship. CREST also transports people to out-of-town medical appointments where the volunteer is given a gas card to help with their gas expenses. If you are interested in helping provide CREST transportation services, please call the CREST office at (507) 235-3833 and ask for a volunteer application.
