Doug and Donna MacKenzie, Saint Andrews
Volunteers with the Charlotte County Alternative Transportation Association Inc. (Charlotte Dial A Ride) since its beginning in 2005, Doug and Donna MacKenzie dedicate their time and personal vehicle to assist those who would otherwise have no transportation.
Charlotte Dial A Ride offers volunteer transportation services to individuals in the Charlotte County area that require transportation assistance.
The MacKenzie’s have been with the organization since the start, making them two of its longest serving volunteers.
Always willing to help the MacKenzie’s, for example, drive students to the local community college, transport people to medical appointments and take to and pick up individuals at the Grand Manan ferry.
Sometimes one or the other provides the drive alone, while other times both go along for the drive because they enjoy meeting new members and catching up with those who regularly use the service.
At the end of 2015, the MacKenzie’s had travelled over 95,000 kilometres in providing transportation assistance, a testament to how involved they are with Dial A Ride.
