YCAN’s Rides Program was started in 2012 and has become a rousing success. We have grown in the number of riders we service, where we go, and the hours we offer rides.
We need more drivers. We give rides Monday thru Friday for errands (local) and for medical appointments (local and in surrounding towns). Jean, the Rides Program coordinator, emails drivers with requests and drivers who are able to fill the requests let her know. What works well about this system is that no one is committed to a specific time and day each week. The more drivers we have, the greater our ability to fulfill all requests. Please consider joining us. You get to meet some wonderful folks!
If you would like to be added to our list of drivers, please contact Jean Rafford at 207-329-7295. Please spread the word to your friends, neighbors, and relatives!
The annual Yarmouth Cares campaign has begun! Please consider a donation to support all of the Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN) programs including:
Yarmouth CAN is a 501(c)(3) private, non-profit, all-volunteer organization, so your contributions are eligible to be tax deductible under Maine and Federal law.
Please make checks payable to Yarmouth CAN, and mail them to:

Please include your name, address, phone number, and email address so that we may send you an acknowledgement of your gift. If you prefer that your name not be publicly acknowledged as a donor to YCAN, please include a note to that effect with your check.

Sue Rowe, Rae Garcelon, and Jean Rafford set up for the Volunteer Luncheon for the Rides Program and the Food Pantry.
Over 25 volunteers showed up to enjoy each other, delicious food, and lively discussions about how to make the programs even stronger.
