Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Do you like to drive? Do you like to help people? Volunteering with the Getting There Ride Share program in Harford County is flexible and easy. Drivers are needed to help transport older adults living in remote areas to health care and other scheduled appointments. As a volunteer driver, you pick your own schedule...helping as little or as much as you are able. Mileage reimbursement and supplemental insurance is available. Help a neighbor in need by volunteering with Getting There Ride Share.
