Arlington Heights, Illinois
We are raising funds to continue our work of providing rides to medical appointments for older adults in the NW Suburbs. We ask for a donation for each ride, but never turn away anyone for their ability to pay. Funds will be used to subsidize rides for those who are unable to cover the cost of of their rides.
Our service is so much more than a ride to an important medical appointment. Our volunteer drivers treat everyone like their own family. Our passengers sit next to the volunteer in the front seat and is shown compassion and companionship. This is what makes ETS/NW so special. Our service also gives family member's peace of mind. Whether they work, live out-of-the-area, have other commitments or simply need some additional assistance, family members can be confident that ETS/NW will get their loved one to his/her crucial medical appointments.
