The Central NC Chapter of the American Red Cross ( Durham/Triangle area) is in immediate need of volunteer drivers for their transportation program!

Drivers use Red Cross vehicles for transporting passengers to medical appointments and boxes of life-saving blood to hospitals. Many of the passengers are elderly, low-income, and or have disabilities. The Chapter currently has two retired letter carriers and could use more. Shifts are flexible and run about four hours. For more information, contact Jeffrey Isaacson, Red Cross Volunteer Specialist, at 919-489-6541 ext. 4120.
