Description of project

Our primary goal is to help seniors with their transportation needs. We are fortunate and very grateful to have volunteers that help fill the majority of the ride requests we receive. The volunteers use their own vehicles and spend their time with the care receivers. Care receivers really enjoy the personal interaction and knowing that someone is there. In the event that we do not have a volunteer who is able to able, we can sometimes use alternative forms such as YellowCab or partnerships with community centers that offer rides for a cost. We cover the costs associated with these services instead of passing the cost on to our care receivers. We currently use these services to help care receivers get to their doctor's appointments and can only cover one ride a week. We would like to expand the program to include grocery shopping trips and potentially more than one trip each week.

Sometimes the trips cost as little as $10.00, some of the trips (such as to the medical center) can cost over $50 one-way.

Matching Donations
