HOISINGTON — The city of Hoisington will soon be receiving a new 20 passenger trolley, but they need volunteer drivers during the weekdays to take people to doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping and to the bank.
The trolley will take Hoisington residents to one destination in the city of Hoisington for 25 cents. This includes not only the elderly, but those who are younger.
Drivers must have a valid driver’s license and cannot be an insulin dependent diabetic or have epilepsy. They are in need of four trolley drivers.
Pat Conrad, who dispatches the trolley, also is in charge of the Friendship Meals held at the Friendship House, 419 E. Third St.
Meals are served five days per week at 11:45 a.m. Conrad said they have 8-10 carryouts.
They have meals for diabetics and those with diverticulitis. The cost is a $3 donation for those 60 and older.
A Meals on Wheels program is also available, and volunteer drivers are needed for that. They need two or three drivers for that program as well.
