On Thursday, June 25, the wonderful staff and residents at Shads Landing, a retirement facility in Charlotte, held an appreciation luncheon for the Greater Carolinas Chapter Transportation Services Program.

Volunteers with the Transportation Services Program have been transporting several Shads Landing residents to and from their critical medical appointments – at no cost to the residents.

Cindy Brinson, manager at Shads Landing, thanked the Red Cross staff and volunteers, noting that the program has had a profound effect on the residents there.

Luncheon guests enjoyed a wonderful meal featuring filet, asparagus and raspberry white chocolate cheesecake.

“We could not do what we do without our wonderful volunteers,” said Sandra Peake, operations manager of the Red Cross Transportation Services Program. “Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.”
