Portrait of Joel Hirschman

Joel Hirshman

Driver Coordination Specialist (Retired Driver), since 2011

Joel is a giver. Literally. In the last few years, he has donated over 1068 pints of blood to help others. That makes him the biggest donor in the Tri-State area. In early 2018, Joel retired from driving with a flawless safety record. These days, he’s the first man in, arriving in the middle of the night, to get everything prepped for our entire team of drivers each day, including the best pot of coffee on this side of 83. When he’s not at FreedomCar helping out, he’s volunteering at St. Joseph Hospital, listening to speakers at Bagel Boys meetings, or packing and delivering food to 24 inner-city schools. Baltimore is lucky to have him.
