AgeWell Rides

Do you want to make a direct difference in a senior’s life? Join AgeWell Rides’ team of volunteer drivers! Through AgeWell Rides and our volunteer drivers, our community is working together to keep seniors active, independent and on the go! Help a local senior who needs to get to a medical appointment or go grocery shopping – or attend any activity that helps them stay active and independent. It is an easy and flexible way to make a big difference to an older adult.  AgeWellRides Website
