If You Like to Drive!
Lincoln County FISH (Friends in Service Helping) is a volunteer driving service for residents of Lincoln County. All rides are free, with drivers donating their time, vehicle and gas. The destinations (both distance and purpose) are only limited by drivers’ willingness. Once a request is received (LC FISH phone is 350-9808), all the drivers are notified by a group email. Drivers do not have a quota in any given time period and each driver determines his or her availability. Given the demographics and geography of our area, there is a huge need and our requests are growing monthly. (We did 98 rides in September and 138 in October.)
So, we are always looking for more drivers. If this ministry speaks to you, please call or email Edie Vaughan – 677-6085, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
And of course, we hope you’ll spread the word to anyone who might need a ride.
