VOLUNTEER DRIVER FAQs
Q: Who is Save the Storks?
A: Save the Storks is a nonprofit, Christian ministry with a mission to revolutionize the meaning of pro-life. We are an organization that partners with and supports pregnancy centers in any way we can. That may be through training or consulting services, or it may be walking them through the process of fundraising for a Stork Bus and launching a successful mobile ministry in their community. Contrary to popular belief, Save the Storks does not own or operate any active Stork Buses. Instead, our affiliate pregnancy centers do that. We are here to provide ongoing support to our affiliates in whatever way they may need. We are honored to work alongside these amazing ministries that are daily serving women and families all across the nation.
Q: So, I wouldn’t be driving a functional Stork Bus that is providing ultrasounds?
A: No, a Volunteer Driver will not be involved in the operations of an active Stork Bus. Save The Storks just helps pregnancy centers build their own Mobile Units. Once Stork has delivered a Mobile Unit to the pregnancy center, their staff will take over and run the day-to-day operation of the Bus.
Q: If you don’t operate Stork Buses, what is a Save the Storks Bus Driver?
A: The Volunteer Driver position is an important one. Our drivers help us serve pregnancy centers and the pro-life community through different driving opportunities.
One driving opportunity is to deliver Mobile Units to pregnancy centers. When a pregnancy center wants to launch a mobile ministry, they partner with Save the Storks to build their bus. Once that bus is complete, Save the Storks volunteers deliver it to its final home.
Another driving opportunity is to drive our Stork’s Demo Bus on what we call a tour. The tours allow us to spread awareness and participate in different events all over the country. Every tour is different, and types of stops will vary.
The Volunteer Driver is the face of Save the Storks when they’re out on the road, which is why the position is so critical.
Q: What sort of stops do Drivers make on Tour?
A: The heart behind our Stork Bus tours is to bring unity to the pro-life movement. There are all kinds of people all over the nation doing wonderful work to further the cause. Our Tours function to unite and serve those people. Most stops on a Tour will be visiting with pregnancy centers: touring their center, hearing their stories, and praying over their ministries. Other types of stops might be taking a Bus to a church on a Sunday morning, meeting with a donor, stopping by a pro-life group at a college campus, or taking the Bus to a marketing event. No matter the stop, a Driver is only responsible for taking good care of the Bus and being a positive representative for Save the Storks.
Q: What is the time commitment?
A: Tours last anywhere from 2-6 weeks. However, we never ask a Driver to commit for more than 15 days at a time. So 2 weeks is the typical amount of time we ask from our Drivers. When delivering a unit, drivers will be out on the road less than a week typically. When a new driving opportunity is available, the Solutions Team will communicate with our Driver Team about possible timeframes.
Q: Do Drivers need a special license to drive a Stork Bus?
A: No, none of our vehicles require a CDL license. Most Stork Buses are upfitted 25ft Mercedes-Benz Sprinters. They’re big, but they fit in a regular parking spot and are wonderful to drive. Our StorkLiner is a 37.5 foot Freightliner, but even that does not require a CDL. Only previous experience driving large vehicles.
