TASC's mission is to help people maintain their health, independence and dignity by mobilizing volunteer drivers to provide rides to eligible residents of the NH seacoast communities we serve.
TASC recruits volunteer drivers to help transit-dependent seniors and other adults with disabilities get where they need to go. TASC serves eligible residents of the towns of Brentwood, Exeter, Greenland, Hampton, Hampton Falls, Kensington, North Hampton, Rye, Seabrook and Stratham, NH.
My husband, Tom, a 3+ year volunteer with TASC, recruited me to help last year. We both work and will "tag team" opportunities. The flexibility of when and where we can help works well for us. Carol, the Executive Director is so easy to work with and, like the wonderful people we've been able to meet, very appreciative. We both highly recommend volunteering with TASC!
I recognize the importance of transportation for the elderly in particular (as I am one of them)--especially for medical appointments, therapy, exercise facilities, etc. And I enjoy being of service and meeting different and interesting people.I recommend TASC as an excellent organization that allows one to accomplish the above at one's own pace through the online sign-up.
For anyone with a car, its a flexible way to do real good for people who need transportation to medical and other appointments. I have met some great people through driving for TASC, and would recommend it to anyone with a few hours of free time during the week.
