How It Works:
Volunteer drivers take riders to various appointments like medical appointments, shopping, banking, programming, and to visit friends or family.
The rider requiring the ride buys tickets for $10.00 each from the Drive Happiness office. Payments can be made by cheque to “Drive Happiness” and mailed, by credit card over the phone (with an additional $3 fee), or by sending an email money transfer to email@example.com with the security answer to any question you choose as “happiness“. Each ticket entitles the rider to ninety minutes of time and/or 40 km driving distance. Time and/or distance over this requires another ticket. Additional details are at https://drivehappiness.ca/ride-program.
Who Will it Benefit?
By providing services to empower seniors, to live independently, to be mobile, we recognize the dignity and rights of all people, working together across lines of age, race, and income to develop quality communities through inclusiveness.
A community that improves the quality of life for people of all ages by strengthening and improving the means by which the community protects, sustains and nurtures its elders; in turn, contributes to the well-being and foresight of that community.
Drive Happiness values collaboration and cohesiveness with other agencies in the community to effectively and efficiently deliver its mission.
We are committed to careful stewardship of all human, natural, and financial resources. This means we carefully use the time and talents of those working with Drive Happiness. We are consciously responsible, and we spend wisely the funds invested in us.
