NHCO urgently needs volunteers in the upper Route 28 corridor
It has an urgent need for volunteers interested in helping seniors in the route 28 corridor near Tarentum and Brackenridge. Specifically, volunteer drivers and on-board dispatchers are needed for the Free Rides for Seniors shuttles, which transport seniors in the Route 28 communities to UPMC medical appointments and shopping during weekdays. No special license is needed and training is provided. Shifts are short. If you are interested, please contact Kerry at 412-449-0151 for more information.
