VillageRides is recruiting volunteer drivers to provide safe rides to seniors and adults with disabilities who can no longer drive themselves to non-COVID-19 related medical appointments, grocery store/pharmacy pick ups or other essential errands in their neighborhoods.
It’s so easy. When you volunteer to drive for one of VillageRides 17 participating community organizations you view and accept only ride requests from neighbors when they work for your schedule. Every ride helps.
