Click HERE to view the video that aired on WCCO featuring CCT and the plea for volunteer drivers across the state.
The CCT staff, volunteer driver and passenger did a great job and we appreciate WCCO for taking notice of this issue! The Mid Minnesota Development Commission RTCC helped make the connections that made this possible. Please share as you are able to help recruitment of volunteer drivers across our service area as well as across the state!
