If you find yourself in need of assistance, whether due to illness, injury, or other life occurrence, or if you know of anyone who might need some help, please contact Maggie Wall. If you'd like to join our bank of Ridge Cares volunteers, please contact Lana Monte. We can always use more hands! There is no specific obligation involved; if a need is identified we will contact all volunteers to check availability. All inquiries will be handled with the utmost discretion. Please don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it; and please sign up to lend a hand if you are able to do so.
