We ask that you please consider RAN and know that your donation will directly support a crucial and unique program:
What sets RAN apart from other transportation programs is that our drivers stay with the senior during their medical appointment. Our rider isn’t worried about getting back home because they know the driver is in the waiting room ready to safely take them home when they need. Since our first ride on May 1, 2017, we have provided over 4,000 rides to Naperville seniors. We have over 375 registered riders and 45 volunteer drivers and board members. (Please read the rider testimonials below.)
We continue to grow by adding more riders weekly and we expand our boundary map when we can. We have a part-time Program Coordinator to schedule our rider appointments and keep our daily tasks running smoothly as well as other program-related duties. While we ask riders to donate $12.00 for every round trip, these donations only cover 40% of RAN operating costs. Your generous donation of any size is greatly appreciated and allows us to continue the good work Naperville’s seniors and their families desperately need.
Thank you for your donation and support!
“Thank you for all you do. You were an incredible uplift during a very challenging time. I have been getting better thanks to your help.”
“I’m so glad this service is available for my parents. I don’t live nearby so this takes a weight off my shoulders and I don’t worry about them getting to their appointments. Thank you so much for all you do.”
“I’ve had several rides and have had three terrific guys as my drivers. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service. I found out about RAN over a year ago and I am glad I signed up for it back then because I knew who to call this past month when I needed it. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service and I am absolutely grateful.”
“My driver was so nice. I felt safe and comfortable and by the time I got home I felt I had a new lifelong friend.”
“I can’t thank RAN enough for the service they provided me while I was going through physical therapy and couldn’t drive myself. Without your help I don’t think I would’ve made it to very many appointments. I was able to make a quick recovery and am now able to drive again. Thank you so very much.”
“I am so grateful for the RAN program. It is a great service for seniors who no longer drive. The drivers are reliable, helpful and very courteous. Thank you.”
