Now Booking – Drive Happiness

June 15, 2022

The town of Hanna is pleased to announce that three Hanna citizens have completed the application process and are now approved to be volunteer drivers with Drive Happiness!

Adeline Cottrell, Kim Barth, and Bill Paisley have met the requirements and have been approved to begin accepting rider match-ups immediately. Drive Happiness provides transportation to seniors (65+) in need of travel services due to limited income, mobility, and other health-related issues. Drivers must provide the following in order to be considered:

  • Volunteer Application Form (including vehicle details and availability)
  • Police Clearance including Vulnerable Sector Check
  • Clean Drivers Abstract for the last 3 years
  • Copy of full class 5 driver’s license and another form of government I.D.
  • Proof of registration
  • Proof of insurance.

Adeline, Kim, and Bill will receive a fuel reimbursement, meet friendly and appreciative seniors and certainly make a difference in Hanna.
