Become a Community Advocate!
Support Community Volunteer Transportation Company (CVTC) by becoming a Community Advocate! CVTC created this new volunteer position for those with only a few hours to give each month. Community Advocates help connect the residents and businesses of their hometown with CVTC through public awareness activities. In as little as one to two hours a month, Community Advocates help promote CVTC by posting flyers on local bulletin boards, sharing posts on social media, attending local events or public meetings, and/or distributing small information cards to local businesses and residents. Community Advocates share their knowledge and support of CVTC with their community when they can. Learn more about becoming a Community Advocate by emailing Renee Sangermano, CVTC Advancement Assistant at: renee@cvtc-nh.org.
