CVTC Challenges Residents to Give a Ride in Honor of Giving Tuesday

CVTC Issues Volunteer Driver Challenge for Giving Tuesday
Community Volunteer Transportation Company (CVTC) is challenging all Monadnock Region drivers
over the age of 21 to register to “Give a Ride” this November in honor of GivingTuesday.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the
past ten years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give,
collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Whether it’s giving time to help a neighbor, giving a voice to an
issue one cares about, or giving a donation to a cause close to one's heart, every act of generosity is
celebrated. GivingTuesday is celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This year it is
on November 29, 2022.

CVTC’s goal is to reach 100 Volunteer Drivers by the end of 2022. Volunteer Drivers are needed in all
34 towns of the Monadnock Region to help people get to essential services such as the grocery store,
bank, post office, pharmacy, and healthcare appointments. Rides are provided to those in the region who
do not have access to needed transportation because of age, ability, economic situation, or other limiting
circumstances. Volunteer Drivers only volunteer when it fits their schedule by selecting their own trips
using an online database and Volunteer Drivers receive mileage reimbursement.
“As the Monadnock Region’s largest Volunteer Driver Program, CVTC sees the increasing need for
transportation assistance due to the region's lack of public transportation. The region’s rural character
is what drives most of us to stay in the area, but it can become challenging when one finds they are
unable to drive. Our intention is to entice drivers in the Monadnock Region to take action to meet the
transportation needs within our community by accepting CVTC’s GivingTuesday challenge and
registering to give a ride with CVTC”, Ellen Avery, Executive Director of CVTC.
