Driver Recruitment Video

have a wonderful creation to share with you.  After many months of work, we have a new video to help us recruit more volunteer drivers for our medical transportation service!  The link below is also on the Volunteer tab of the website.

I want to thank our drivers, Peter (voice over), Randy and Beth, and our clients Martha and Barbara, for making this a true TSCOR production.  They are fantastic!

Please feel free to share this with your family, friends and those that may be inclined (or need to be convinced) to volunteer.  And, if you are connected with a group, congregation or organization that would benefit from a presentation by our speaker’s bureau, please let me know.  We are really focused on driver recruitment this year.  Enjoy the video – Julie

WE Need Volunteer Drivers

Click HERE for a story about our fellow Shepherd’s Center in Chesterfield and their critical need for more volunteer drivers. Please help in their area if you can.  And, if you are not in their area, our Center is also in need of more drivers.

The demand for senior transportation will only become greater as time goes on.  Please help us take care of our elder citizens.  Thank you – Julie

Be Kind

Virginia “Gini” Bonnell shared her journey last Thursday during lunch at the Open University in a talk entitled, Choose Kindness, Change the World.  She spoke about the life-changing inspiration that led her to create the “Be Kind” signs.  To get others involved, Gini had signs for everyone in the room and encouraged us to hang them outside in a place where they would be seen.

Well, I did just that and wanted to share it with all of you!  If you have a “Be Kind” sign that you have hung, send me a picture (jadams@TSCOR.org) and I will be happy to share it here with everyone too!  What a good message to spread – Julie
