Volunteer drivers needed in Windham
At the time, then board chairman Bruce Breton said Windham could do without CART’s services since the town already allows its residents to schedule rides in the municipal van.
“Right now we’re seeing a definite increase in the need for transportation services,” Cindee Tanuma, executive director of Community Caregivers of Greater Derry. “So we’re currently filling that need almost entirely by drivers in surrounding towns.
“If you have two days a month to drive a fellow community member to a local appointment, we want to hear from you,” Tanuma said, noting that a common misconception about volunteering is that it’s more of a commitment than it really is.
Organization officials said the majority of rides given would be within a 10-mile radius, though occasionally some volunteers might be asked to drive clients to other nearby Massachusetts or southern N.H. towns.
Staffed almost entirely by volunteers, Community Caregivers assists the elderly and disabled with services such as friendly visiting, grocery shopping, light chores, home repair and maintenance, and medical transportation, with all services provided at no cost to the clients.
