Do you love writing, but lack inspiration? Look no further because you need to write and we need stories! Ride Connection is a crucial component of our region’s transportation system: last year we provided nearly 417,000 rides to people who would otherwise be without transportation options. We need your help in increasing public awareness around the issues of transportation and mobility issues for older adults and those with disabilities.
Volunteers are needed to put our rider’s stories down on paper so we can advocate for funding and educate the general public about what we do. Volunteers call riders and ask them about their experiences using Ride Connection’s array of services. Capture the faces of our riders and volunteers by taking pictures. From your notes and possible pictures you’ll create simple, short and inspirational stories that may be posted on our Facebook page and website, send to legislators, share with local media outlets and use in brochures and appeal letters.
