Introducing Ann Ashby,
Interlink’s new Program
Specialist for Transportation
Interlink is pleased to announce the hiring
of a new Program Specialist for our Transportation Program
Ann Ashby brings a wealth of local experience to add to our Interlink skill set. Since 2010, Ann has worked for the following local employers: Schweitzer Engineering, Salvation Army, Opportunities Unlimited, the Union Gospel Mission, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, and – most recently – Community Action Partnership.
Ann says she has a passion for helping people in need, the underprivileged, and especially our senior citizen population. Her duties at Interlink will include taking over the work from Office Manager Loren Beauchamp of scheduling ride requests and coordinating with our volunteer drivers. This will
allow Loren to gradually shift over to his new role as our Volunteer Recruiter and Manager.
So in the future, it is quite likely that Ann may be the first voice you hear on the telephone when you call Interlink.
Welcome aboard Ann!
As reported a few months ago, the IRS raised the allowable mileage reimbursement to $0.625 effective July 1. The Interlink Board of Directors decided to follow suit by increasing our payments to our Volunteers who choose to take reimbursement to the same amount – as long as we can afford to do so.
