Harvest Transportation

Salem Harvest is striving to include more families who could benefit from the opportunities that our organization provides. We know that for many people, driving to a harvest is not possible or is difficult to arrange. With these concerns in mind, the Transportation Committee is collaborating with other groups in the community to explore ways to reduce this participation barrier.
.
However, before we can continue our planning, we need more information about how much transportation help volunteers need. Please answer the following questions to help us better understand the overall need. Thank You!
