Charity Reaches Milestone of 200,000 Rides for Seniors

See this exciting news from The Times of San Diego about Federation funded On the Go - celebrating 200,000 rides!

 BY  ON  IN  
Jewish Family Service’s On the Go transportation program for San Diego-area seniors reached a milestone of 200,000 rides on Thursday.
The five-year-old program provides accessible and affordable transportation for elderly San Diegans who are no longer able to drive, taking them to doctors’ appointments, religious activities, shopping centers, recreational outings and luncheons. The program is designed to give seniors a boost in independence, community connection, mobility and dignity.
On the Go is celebrating the 200,000 rides milestone by taking busloads of seniors to Thursday’s tall ship parade hosted by the San Diego Maritime Museum.
The program relies on volunteer drivers, and applications are available online.
Jewish Family Service of San Diego provides help and support to families and individuals of all denominations throughout San Diego County and the Coachella Valley.
