LACONIA, NH – Spring is here and summer is right around the corner, which means the Lakes Region General Hospital (LRGH) Courtesy Cart is ramping up their shuttle service and drivers are needed.
The LRGH Auxiliary purchased the six passenger golf cart to serve as a free "Courtesy Shuttle" to transport patients and visitors from their parking space to the main entrance of LRGH and the Medical Office Building. The service is particularly helpful not only to those patients or visitors who have difficulty with mobility, but also to those with several items to carry or children accompanying them.
The cart operates from May until October, and volunteers may choose between two shifts, 8:00 am to 12:00 pm or Noon to 3:00 pm. Volunteer drivers need to be friendly, reliable and comfortable driving a golf cart.
Over the years, the Courtesy Cart has been used to transport literally thousands of patients and visitors, and it truly is a valued service for those in need. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer driver, please contact LRGHealthcare Volunteer Coordinator Darcy Peary at 737-6720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
