The month of September was packed with opportunities for our volunteers. During the month, our ten volunteer drivers logged 6746 miles and over 500 hours of service!
ElderPoint’s clients live throughout Polk County and our drivers graciously transported them all around Lakeland and points beyond including Auburndale, Haines City, Lake Wales, Polk City, Winter Haven, and Frostproof. Not only did they cover Polk County, but many trips were made to Brandon and several locations in Tampa.
The miles and hours represent approximately 177 individual men and women who, without our drivers, would have no other means of getting to their doctor appointments, the pharmacy, the grocery store, or to church.
Our drivers give generously of their time and patience, each one always willing to go the extra mile-literally and figuratively.
