FISH Needs Volunteer Drivers

FISH (Friendly Independent Sympathetic Help) is a Lexington community service organization founded in 1972 that provides free rides to Lexington seniors and other residents (who do not have access to their own cars) to medical appointments in Lexington and vicinity and in Boston.  FISH needs additional volunteer drivers to fill the requests for rides we receive year-round.  Drivers typically volunteer to drive one day a month and can choose to provide rides to destinations in Lexington and vicinity or in Boston. It is a highly rewarding experience and the people for whom we provide rides express their deep appreciation and gratitude for this unique service.
If you would like to become a FISH driver or would like further information about it, please call Dave Horton at 781-862-3293 or look at the FISH web site:
