The Disabled American Veterans Transportation Network of Central New York is looking for volunteers to drive veterans to medical appointments.
The group is looking for about 20 drivers for a new I-90 Rome-Mohawk corridor. The new corridor is being set up to save time, money, and convenience for the veterans.
Volunteers must complete an application, pass a physical exam and health screening, have a valid driver's license, and complete a background check.
"We're bringing people in at 4 o'clock in the morning from Syracuse, getting in a van, picking people up from Westmoreland all the way down to Little Falls," said Bill Gleason, head recruiter for DAV. "Now you're from this area, you know how big this area can be, and we're coming from Syracuse to do it."
Drivers can volunteer as much or as little as they wish. Anyone interested in becoming a driver can contact Bill Gleason at 315-425-4343, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
