Got an hour?  Give a lift!   Patients need a ride!
Meet Elizabeth: Wife, Volunteer, Portlander, Kidney Patient and Patient Advocate...Every once in a while, she could use a lift home from dialysis. Give Elizabeth and other dialysis patients rides home after their life-sustaining treatments!

Got an Hour? Give a Lift!

If you've ever known someone going through dialysis, you know dialysis treatments are not easy. Make the most of your hour by driving people home after their exhausting and lengthy dialysis treatments.

Your help could mean a comfortable ride home, allowing someone extra time to recuperate. You can use one of your vehicles, or a Ride Connection vehicle.

Mileage reimbursement is available if you drive your own vehicle. Excellent trainings are provided (which may lower your vehicle insurance costs)!

If you've got an hour of time, consider giving it to someone who could really use a lift!

Contact us at Ride Connection for more information!
