Neighbor Ride keeps Seniors engaged and active in their daily lives by providing a safe point-to-point ride. I get the honor of being that "provider" and I have the good fortune to meet some incredible people. I recently met a gentleman with over 50 years as an Educator. I have my 10 years in and I found him to be an inspiration to keep at it (but NOT for 40 more!) I enjoy providing rides that work for my schedule -- I work full time so I volunteer nights and weekends where I am available. There is a great deal of need for this service throughout the county so I am glad that I can contribute. If you think you need a volunteer position that meets your schedule, this is the one to consider. You have to like to drive and you have to like Seniors and you have to be patient but it all tends to work out very smoothly. It has been very rewarding.
