Monarch’s Health Drive Receives the 2013 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award for Craven County
The participants at Monarch’s Health Drive day program, which provides a variety of activities and support to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, in Craven County, love to help their neighbors.
Volunteers at Health Drive spend hundreds of selfless hours delivering Meals on Wheels to seniors, tidying and setting up the sanctuary at Temple Baptist Church in preparation for weekly service, and sorting clothes at Religious Community Services.
