Just Rides Training

Wednesday, July 17, 10:00am - 12:30pm

CaringMatters, 518 S. Frederick Ave., Gaithersburg, MD

Interested in volunteering with CaringMatters but have limited availability?
This is a great opportunity for you!

 

JustRides, in partnership with Adventist Healthcare, provides free and reliable transportation for adults and their families being treated for cancer or other blood disorders at one of the Adventist Cancer Center in Rockville and Silver Spring, Maryland. CaringMatters also has a partnership with VillageRides that supports our Just Rides volunteer program. Read more about the Just Rides program HERE.

 

Just Rides volunteers will be trained on how to support CaringMatters patients who need transportation to and from doctor's appointments, medical treatments, social service appointments and grocery/pharmacy trips. Transportation is a major need for those living with cancer and other serious illness, especially for those who must attend multiple treatments or doctor appointments per week.

 

CaringMatters seeks to alleviate the stress and financial burden of finding transportation for our patients and their families. JustRides volunteers do this by providing rides to supplement transportation already being provided by family members, friends, and other community resources. Currently, JustRides is only supporting active CaringMatters patients with transportation.

 

 Volunteer requirements:

  • Attend 2.5 hour training at CaringMatters

  • Commit to 2 - 4 rides per month

  • Have their own car

  • Must be at 21 years old

  • Agree to both a criminal and MVA background check

  • Complete three references

  • Undergo a Tuberculosis test
