Volunteers Drive, Seniors Thrive

______________________________________________________________________________________________

If you could no longer drive and didn't have anyone to take you, how would you get around? Trained and trusted volunteers have provided rides in Dallas since World War II. The Community Transportation Network, a coalition of 75+ community organizations, is driving support for new and existing volunteer driver programs in Dallas County.

Executive Director, Martha Blaine led a panel discussion with Dallas area directors,
Greg Gerendas of Senior Adult Services, Nancy Jellinek of the Visiting Nurse Association, Margo Toussaint
of the American Cancer Society and Debi Weiner of Jewish Family Services at a volunteer best practices
meeting on March 10.
