ORGANIZATION: Ride Connection

  • 18 people are interested
Volunteer driver with grateful customer

Have a license to drive and a little bit of spare time? Live in Forest Grove, or elsewhere in Washington County? Right now, there are older adults and people with disabilities in your neighborhood who need transportation. Why not take someone to the grocery store, a medical appointment, to visit a loved one in a nursing home, or to the Senior Center? You can help someone take care of their basic needs and stay connected with the community.

Drive as much or as little as you'd like! Drive your vehicle or one of ours! Drive in your own neighborhood or near your workplace. Mileage reimbursement is available. As a volunteer driver, you will positively impact the lives of others, get to know wonderful people, and attend excellent trainings (which may lower your insurance costs).

Contact Ride Connection today to learn how!
