WHO ARE THE CHESED VOLUNTEERS?
The typical volunteer is a licensed driver who must have a clean driving record and comfortable car, and has a reliable and trustworthy reputation. He might be anyone, from an insurance agent, a salesman, a computer programmer, who has a flexible work setup and a caring and generous heart. Most volunteers are so devoted that they plan their work schedules around their Chesed trips. Many of them feel if they haven’t done a "Chesed trip", they have not done an accomplished day’s work. CHESED volunteers are trained to respect the privacy of their passengers and often have "little treats" prepared for their younger patients.
Each member is prepared to go that extra mile to make a difference in someone’s life.
