Last month, the United Way of the Brazos Valley asked for your help in an online contest for a grant.
Now, in September, UWBV announces they have been selected as a winner from that contest. UWBV is one of 40 national organizations to receive a $25,000 grant, based on the number of people who voted in the contest.
The grant will go towards launching a rideshare program for patients needing transportation to non-emergency health care appointments, mental health services and pharmacies.
If you are interested in being a volunteer driver for the Ride2Health service, more information is online at volunteerbrazosvalley.org.
