Ride Share Program
Lou Go’s transportation has provided free to low cost rides for seniors and people with disabilities in San Juan County twice per week. This is not just a transportation service for doctors appointments. This service is allowing the community access to travel for any type of commute. From hair appointments, to grocery shopping or a bingo game at a local senior center.
We believe in getting our elders and people with disabilities back into the community and providing that social interaction. Lou Go’s started this program through a grant from the NADTC agency in 2018. The grant ended in October 2019 and we are looking for volunteers to continue this much needed service within our community.
Volunteers use our vehicles to provide rides to our community members twice a week from 8am to 6pm. The qualifying factors include having a driver’s license and no more than two infractions on your driving record in the past two years. We have (2) 4 hour blocks that we need filled twice a week. Our goal would be to add more days as we get more volunteer drivers.
Community Beautification Volunteer Projects
Capacity Builders Inc. has several volunteer-based community beautification projects planned this Spring. We will be picking up and doing some basic landscaping in several communities. Food, water and all necessary equipment will be provided to volunteers who participate. We ask that all participants wear work clothes and shoes.
