Friends in Service Helping (FISH)
FISH is an organization of volunteers that provides transportation to and from medical and similar appointments within Concord and the nearby area. This free service is available to all residents who are unable to drive themselves - not only senior citizens. Want to volunteer? FISH depends on volunteers to drive and to take requests for services. Volunteers normally donate one day a month either as a driver or a phone volunteer. If you would like to volunteer, please call us at 978-369-2244 and leave your name and phone number. We will contact you for an interview.
