American Cancer Society - Local Drivers Needed
Road to Recovery Drivers provide transportation for cancer care. For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to their treatment, our Road To Recovery® volunteers donate their spare time to give cancer patients a much-needed lift. Even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there. That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous, potentially life-saving asset to your community.
To volunteer, you would need to own or have regular access to a safe, reliable vehicle, then you’re already on the road to volunteering.
- A good driving record
- A current, valid driver’s license
- Proof of adequate automobile insurance
- Completion of the American Cancer Society training course
- Regular access to a computer, laptop, tablet computer
- Schedule availability, typically Monday-Saturday
You will need to register at https://www.cancer.org/involved/volunteer/sign-up-to-volunteer.html
You will be contacted by a volunteer care specialist discuss the program, your expectations, and what you hope to gain from the experience so we can ensure a good fit. You will take online required training, which is self-paced and takes around 90 minutes. From there you’ll complete a background check and once approved, provide your schedule availability so you can begin being matched to patients needing transportation.
