KVCAP: The Importance of a Ride

For many of our neighbors in central Maine communities, they no longer have access to a car. Imagine needing to get to a doctor appointment, your important dental visit or to see your Eye Doctor and you have no ride. Thankfully, organizations like KVCAP, with offices in Waterville, Augusta and Skowhegan can help. Our Vans and Volunteer Drivers provide nearly 1000 trips per day.

If you have a clean driving record and would like to build your own schedule, you could volunteer drive for KVCAP. Some drive 5 hours a week, some drive 40 hours. We reimburse you for the use of your car, up to 65 cents a mile and pay you from the time you leave your driveway.

Want to do your part to help others? Call KVCAP at 859-1631 for more information.
