NEIGHBOR RIDE INC
April 9, 2013

When one has extra time during retirement and the desire to "pay it forward" , Neighbor Ride provides an excellent option for community service. While there are multiple opportunities available to those who want to volunteer, Neighbor Ride gives back to the volunteer as much as the volunteer gives to Neighbor Ride. There is no fixed time or scheduling commitment. You get to donate as much, or as little, time as you want when you have the time available.

Some people do not like to say "no" when asked by others for help. With Neighbor Ride you never have to say no. You get to see who needs a ride and when they need the ride. You sign up for the ride with a positive action. If you cannot or do not want to take a ride, you do nothing, you do not have to turn someone down or say no. You call them, they do not call you.

With Neighbor Ride you quickly expand your friends in the community. You get to know you riders and can quickly see how important a few minutes of your time is to them. They get to stay in their homes because transportation is available and affordable. You can also foresee the day when you might depend upon the volunteers of Neighbor Ride to provide you with transportation so you can enjoy your later years in you own home. That's the pay it forward aspect that appeals to me.
