A Helping Hand for Travelers

By Linda Tancs

Uncertain weather and other circumstances can leave travelers feeling pretty stranded.  Just ask any of the folks throughout U.S. airports feeling the effects of the recent blizzard in the Northeast.  During such trying times, it’s nice to know that there are volunteers at transportation hubs willing to lend a hand.  That’s the idea behind the volunteer organization Travelers Aid, a network of individuals providing transportation assistance for those in crisis at airports as well as bus and train stations.  Serving over six million people last year, volunteers are always welcome.  Check your locale for the network nearest you.
