MyRide West Tennessee Waymaker
At MyRide West TN, we are dedicated to supporting as many older adults as possible. We are always striving to make a difference in people's lives! You can help us with that mission by by becoming a "Waymaker". Our volunteers drivers do more than just drive, they are a listening ear, a hand to hold, a smile when someone is down and a friendly face. So we like to say we have "Waymakers" because they 'make a way for our older adults in our community'. We only ask our "Waymakers" to commit 3 hours a month, but encourage you to do as much as you feel led to do.
