Volunteer Drivers Honored at Luncheon

On January 31, 2019, volunteer drivers from around the region – Culpeper, Fauquier, Orange, Rappahannock and Madison Counties — were honored for their service.  Aging Together, Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services (RRCS) and Foothills Area Mobility System (FAMS) joined forces in thanking the men and women who give their time to get senior citizens and others to medical and other critical appointments.

Nearly fifty individuals attended the luncheon at the Culpeper Senior Center and were treated not only to delicious food and a gift card  but also to a comedy routine by Shirley Workman, Madison Senior Center Supervisor.

Volunteer drivers are affiliated with the Care-A-Van program through RRCS, Rapp Rides, Rapp Med Rides, LOWLINC, VolTran, and Rapp At Home.  RRCS also has food delivery volunteers.

There is always a need for additional volunteer drivers. If you like to drive, have a valid driver’s license with auto insurance and are 21 or over, please consider this volunteer opportunity.  Volunteer driving is a simple, low-cost but high-impact way of giving back to your community.

For more information, contact the FAMS Call Center, 540-829-5300.
