December Volunteer Recruitment for Carepool

Whistlestop's CarePool program helps those in need with FREE rides to medical appointments and to the grocery store with the help of volunteer drivers. We need your help! Our goal for December is to recruit 40 new volunteer drivers so we can offer this valuable service to more people in need. It's flexible, easy and a wonderful way to give back. Won't you help us reach our goal?

The annual fee for new members is just $10-20 (sliding scale). This membership entitles you to reduced rates for classes and meals in Jackson Café and also supports the center by improving participation data collection.
