More than a Numbers Game

Our annual statistics are in, and we are happy to report that 2013 was officially a big year for us!  The Volunteer Transportation program alone covered 415,189.63 miles.  That’s well over 16 trips around the world at its equatorial circumference.  Wow! 

This figure, however, does not capture the other non-quantifiable successes of Volunteer Transportation in 2013.  We can’t measure the increased peace of mind, acts of kindness, meaningful interactions, or spirits lifted due to the program.   We just rest assured that our volunteer drivers accumulated “miles of miles” of good deeds, and we are excited for an equally epic 2014!
