CREST is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Town of Clarenville, Random Age-Friendly Com­mu­ni­ties, and Ser­vice Groups that is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing ap­pro­pri­ate and af­ford­able trans­porta­tion for peo­ple over age 60 and those over 25 who re­quire the use of a wheel­chair.

The pi­lot pro­ject was funded by the Gov­ern­ment of New­found­land and Labrador. The ser­vice cov­ers an area cen­tered in Clarenville with ap­prox­i­mately a 20-kilo­me­tre ra­dius.

Presently, our vol­un­teers come from Clarenville, El­liott’s Cove, Hil­lview, Hatchet Cove, and Mus­grave­town. Some live out­side our ser­vice area and still con­tinue to vol­un­teer.

Our vol­un­teers are not only re­tirees. Many have full-time jobs and vol­un­teer on their days off or on their turn­around from other prov­inces. These peo­ple are to be highly com­mended.

If you have one day per month and would like to make a dif­fer­ence in some­one’s life, please check out CREST at the be­fore-men­tioned con­tact in­for­ma­tion.
