RAN is participating in Giving Tuesday.
What is this? Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. But, you don’t have to wait ’til Giving Tuesday. Donate Today!
Ride Assist Naperville (RAN) is a program of Naperville Seniors in Action (NSIA), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of current tax law.

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 while they are with the doctor, pick up prescriptions, and then return them home. Since May, 2017, we’ve provided over 300 round trip rides, have 139 riders, and 25 volunteer drivers and board members. (Please read the rider testimonials below.)
We’ve grown to the point that, to properly function as well as meet increasing demand, we hired a program coordinator to administer rider appointments and 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!
“Just a note to say thank you for helping me out with rides after I had total knee replacement. Every driver was very friendly, helpful, and always on time to pick me up for my physical therapy. I enjoyed meeting the drivers and would highly recommend RAN to anyone who needs help getting to appointments. Thanks again.”
“I was very pleased with my first experience with RAN! I came home feeling as if I had just found a new friend! Thank you!”
“Thank you for this blessing of a service!!”
“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.”
