Using Neighbor Ride has been one of the nicest experiences of my 92 years old life! Meeting so many nice people and receiving such great care has been wonderful.

My husband Jim has served by Neighbor Ride for a couple of years now- and this is the best group of volunteers ever. They are always prompt when picking him up and returning him home. My husband has the added issue of dementia and needs extra attention ... the drivers lovingly assist him in every way. I am very grateful for the volunteer drivers and this program.

I forgot to mention the wonderful volunteers who answer the phone and do the scheduling! They are awesome!
