A critical need exists for volunteer drivers with the Red Cross Community Transportation Program. The service provides transportation for seniors and medically fragile residents to their medical appointments using Red Cross vehicles. Volunteer drivers drive a portion of more than 14,000 trips a year within Franklin County. Volunteers must be 21-years-old or older and have a valid Ohio driver’s license and good driving record.

Residents interested in volunteering outside of Franklin County can contact their local Red Cross for information. Find your local Red Cross office at redcross.org/find-your-local-chapter.
