Spotlight on Frank O’Reilly: Founding Board Member & Volunteer

Frank O'Reilly In 1983, a small group of men affiliated with Catholic Charities in Lakeland saw an unmet need in the community – their elderly neighbors had no way to get to medical appointments. The group, including Frank O’Reilly, wanted to help and began providing free transportation for seniors in need. From this effort Volunteers in Service to the Elderly was established.
