Do you need transportation?
Cumberland Area Rides (CAR) program, sponsored by the Congregational Church in Cumberland in conjunction with Aging in Place Cumberland, provides rides free of charge to Cumberland seniors who do not otherwise have access to transportation. The rides program, launched in March 2016, relies on volunteers to drive riders where they need to go.
For more information or to schedule a ride with CAR, please call Lisa at 207-829-3367 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
