Transportation 

 

One of the most important and constant needs we have here at Heartfelt Tidbits is assistance with transportation. We always need volunteers to pick up and drop off our newest neighbors. We carry insurance for drivers who choose to use their own cars and we own a van that volunteers may opt to use instead. This volunteer opportunity can be added on to another task, or it can be a standalone option.
