Project 5...a volunteer transportation service that takes Jewish seniors where they want to go.
It’s more than just a ride:
Inspired by the 5th Commandment, honor thy father and mother, volunteers help seniors in the Capital Region maintain their independence by driving them were they need to go: medical and dental appointments, shopping and errands, religious services, cultural and social events, luncheons with friends…
Volunteer for Project 5
