  CDL Drivers Needed     Great Incentives! We’re fortunate to have some terrific volunteers who drive our vans for Sinto’s tour program, but right now we could really use more CDL drivers. Our 24 passenger tour van requires a commercial drivers license (CDL). All tour expenses are free for our driver, plus your spouse pays only minimum expenses. Drivers who have a CDL can have their renewals paid by Sinto for as long as they drive for us. We look forward to talking to you about this opportunity. Call us and ask for Beth   (509) 327-2861
