READY RIDES

A volunteer driving organization to assist the senior citizens and disabled residents of Lee, Durham, Madbury and Newmarket is being explored!

At this time we are looking for people to help with this endeavor by serving on this committee to manage programs for each town or volunteer as a driver to get these valued members of these communities to medically-related appointments. All drivers go through a vetting process and receive a small mileage reimbursement.

If you are interested, please e-mail Ready Rides at info@readyrides.org or call 244-8719
