Cancer society seeking volunteers to help transport patients

March 3, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Ursula Albino and her husband, Joe, have enjoyed the last 20 years of their retirement, but in that time, they have also found ways to give back to others.

Most recently, in 2010, they signed up to volunteer for the American Cancer Society's (ACS) Road to Recovery program, which pairs community volunteers with cancer patients to provide rides to and from cancer treatments.

But in the last two years, the Albinos have remained the only volunteers covering Jefferson County, so they are seeking some extra hands.
