If, like so many others, you’ve resolved to reach out and make a difference in your community in 2013, consider Neighbor Ride, a volunteer-based transportation service committed to decreasing isolation and improving the quality of life for Howard County’s older residents. Neighbor Ride and its dedicated volunteers help seniors remain active and independent by providing rides for medical appointments, shopping, social outings, fitness activities, religious services, volunteer commitments and other day-to-day needs. In the words of a passenger, “It is truly a blessing to have such a service in the county. Without your wonderful volunteers, I don’t know how I would get to all my appointments. Thank you so much!”
Flexible and rewarding daytime, evening and weekend volunteer opportunities are available. Volunteer drivers may choose to provide rides that both fit their schedules and are convenient to their homes, offices and daily routines. Parent volunteers are welcome to bring their children along for a wonderful intergenerational experience. Please contact Rosemary Noble or Patrice Cerwonka at 410-884-RIDE or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about volunteering.
