The American Cancer Society Transportation Program received help from Corning Incorporated Foundation to fill an urgent need of drivers for its Road to Recovery program.
“In Steuben County there are more than 160 patients annually who need transportation to cancer treatments. The Corning Incorporated Foundation is pleased to support the Road to Recovery program with a $6,000 grant to help with services for these patients,” Andrea Lynch, President, Corning Incorporated Foundation.
The program is expanding further into the county and needs more drivers to meet that need. The organization screens and trains all volunteer drivers, and coordinates rides for patients. Drivers donate their time and can provide as many rides as they want.
All drivers must have:
- A current, valid driver’s license
- A good driving record
- Access to a safe and reliable vehicle
- Regular desktop, laptop, or tablet computer access
- Proof of car insurance
