Give A Ride

Many people in our community have no transportation of their own, cannot use the bus and yet need to access healthcare and other critical services. Interested in becoming a volunteer driver? Contact your senior center, faith group, health or community center to find out how you can help neighbors get where they need to go. You’ll find it a rewarding experience!
