Wednesday Night Program Van Driver

We are looking for two van drivers to pick up and drop off children who need rides to and from our Wednesday Character Building program.

Many children are unable to go to our great programs because at times parents are working or simply too busy to drop off and pick up their kids.

This is a great way to not only give back to a community in need, but also impact the life of a child in ways other methods simply can't.

Pick up begins at 3:30 pm

Drop offs begins at 8:00 pm
