DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Most of us take driving our cars for granted. Hermina Marks of Delray Beach, gave up that right when she turned 90, the age she believes everyone should turn in their keys.
"They can no longer see, hear or walk properly, they have no business driving," said Marks.
Now, Marks relies on Kibbitz & Ride to get around. The program entrusts volunteers like Cindy Taylor, to driver seniors to the doctor, the barber, or the local senior center.
But volunteers are running low.
"They're at a loss how to pick up the slack. In the last week, I've had five or six calls and I do as much as I possibly can," said Taylor.
The program needs 60 people to meet the demand for 100 seniors, right now there are only 25 volunteers.
If you want to volunteer contact Beth Levine, volunteer coordinator for the Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service at (561) 853-3334.
