We Need Volunteer Drivers!

Do you have a few hours to spare? You can make a huge difference in the lives of Cumberland’s seniors by driving them to medical appointments, town functions, AIP events, the supermarket, visits to friends, local religious services, or other destinations.

And you will have the satisfaction of helping a fellow resident!

What our riders say: “It was so enjoyable to be able to attend the theater again. I thought that part of my life was over.”
“I’ve been feeling like I was living in a prison. This will be so helpful.”

What our drivers say: “She was super excited as she does NOTHING for social activity and this was her first outing!” 

“Everything went great! Both ladies were friendly and so appreciative.”
