Your time commitment to CREST can be as little as one day per month. Available opportunities include drivers, assistants and booking.

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.
