We veterans in Shiawassee County need more volunteer drivers for taking us to our appointments in Saginaw, Ann Arbor, Detroit and such.
We are trading in our old DAV van for a new one so we can purchase a bigger, better van at a discount from a dealer. It needs to have a back door, wheelchair lift and come with a wheelchair, and seat nine people. I sure hope the deal happens as we need two vehicles to go to two different hospitals the same day.
To become a volunteer driver, correct driver qualifications, a physical and background check on your driving record is required. A driver can be male or female, veteran or not. Please call the Shiawassee County VA in Corunna at (989) 743-2231.
If you can’t drive, maybe you know someone who is bored at home or wants something neat to do. Our drivers are all very much appreciated, but we sure need more of them. Uncle Sam wants you!
