Connect offers rides to vaccinations

Volunteers make themselves available

Posted

Community life is buzzing going forward from the COVID-19 pandemic phase.

While residents watch activities return to normal there are seniors questioning whether or not the pandemic is over. 

Northwest Valley Connect Volunteers have a concern for those not vaccinated and remain vulnerable to the possibility of contracting the virus. NVC volunteers have a solution. They made themselves available for residents’ assistance. Call NVC at 623-282-9300 and a call center representative or dispatcher will schedule a vaccine site visitation, including a home pick-up and delivery.

Northwest Valley Connect is an essential transport service for seniors 65 and older, individuals with disabilities and veterans residing independently in the West Valley who are without access to personal rides, or lack public transportation because services are nonexistent or fragmented. A free ride service is just one click away.

Editor’s Note: Kathy Chandler is Northwest Valley Connect director and mobility manager.
