SARASOTA, FL (WWSB)-  70-year old Linda Davis was honored today for her volunteer work at ITN Suncoast, a non-profit organization that provides transportation to seniors and those with vision impairments.

She won the Golden Beacon Award from Bankers Life, which includes a $2,000 donation in Davis’ honor.

Davis has volunteered with ITN for the past three years, giving more than 100 rides a year to those in need. “She also recruits volunteers, raises funds, created a Car Karaoke campaign and is the secretary of the Board of Directors,” according to her profile.

She says she was just “looking for something to fill time” when she first began volunteering. But now she looks forward to meeting new people and “driving people to where they need to be.”
