CALL-A-RIDE OF GREENWICH, INC.

Description:

Independent, nonprofit volunteer organization, founded in 1975.  They provide free door-to-door transportation for Greenwich’s ambulatory senior citizens, over age 60, who lack other means of transportation. Three cars provide rides five days a week to anywhere in Greenwich for any purpose; doctors, drug stores, attorneys, banks, shopping, hair appointments, rides to the polls on election day, and even visiting with friends.  Clients need to call well in advance and usually make a small donation to help defray operating costs.  Service to GREENWICH HOSPITAL – DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING CENTER in Stamford is provided, but not to individual physicians in Stamford. Call-A-Ride does not operate on holidays or snowy days if schools are cancelled, tune in to  WGCH Radio.  They follow the GREENWICH SENIOR CENTER’S holiday schedule.
