This month we’d like to give thanks to Lee Lombard. Lee is one of our Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. In fact he is one of our top TAP drivers, consistently in the top three for miles driven and hours. He came to the center nearly five years ago, just looking to donate some books, when he happened to see a TAP flyer on the board. He asked the Front Desk person what TAP was, and she took him straight to the TAP coordinator. That was all it took, and he=s been driving ever since. He now drives every weekday, and even on weekends, sometimes taking 2 rides a day. He drives all over the Inland Empire which doesn’t leave him much time to explore the fun things our center has to offer, but he hopes to get involved soon. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, his father’s travels in the Air Force eventually brought him out to March AFB in Riverside, and he=s been here ever since. He did a stint in the Air Force, where he got trained in Military Pay, which helped him after he left, to get into Money Management, which he turned into a 30 year career as a banker and financial advisor. Now single, he has a daughter and two grandsons. Thanks Lee stepping up big time into this important program.

Featured Activity

We are looking for a volunteer for one of the easiest mechanic jobs ever! No spanners, floor jacks, or torque wrenches needed. However, knowing the difference between a dip stick and stick shift is desirable. All we are looking for is someone to come in at least once a week to check our vehicles. Just like the full service of old, check the tire pressure, fluid levels, note any dings, etc. If it helps we will even get you a star and we will trust our car to the man who wears the star. (If you find that sexist please send any complaints to Texaco and date it 30 years ago)
