Union Sc has a fentanyl problem. What it doesn;t have is a methadone clinic or any kind of public transportation. This leaves most addicts stuck in the addiction cycle because they don't have a way out. We need volunteers to pick up 2-3 passengers from one pick up point in Union County and deliver them to the methadone clinic in Clinton SC between 5:30-8 am monday-Saturday. You will actually be saving these people's lives! Without your help, these people will most likely continue using until it kills thems. We hope to eventually purchase a bus, so all riders can take one vehicle but until then we need several volunteers to donate their time and use of their vehicle. We will reimburse gas money as much as possible and offer appreciation gifts when available. This is a demanding position but the rewards are equally great. You get to see someone go from rock bottom and go back to their true self, and all because of you!
