I just received a call from one of the OVH drivers who shared with me a recent driving experience. His passenger, age 90+, was in need of an operation and could not afford to pay for private transportation to and from the doctor’s office or the hospital. She said, “Oakmont Volunteer Helpers saved my life!” And she thought that without the benefit of the volunteer drivers she would not have been able to have her operation.
I am really grateful for all the volunteers who have stepped up to drive over the years. Without them stories such as this would not happen. As many of us know, there is a wonderful dedication to service within the Oakmont community and OVH drivers are wonderful examples of this commitment.
We welcome your participation in this valuable activity.
