Neighbors ask and receive help for rides regularly on Front Porch Forum.
“I am in awe of this community I live in! I received 7 offers, and 2 more responses, to my last FPF posting requesting a ride to an upcoming medical appointment. It’s easy to ask for referrals for roofers, gardeners, etc., but- at least for me- not that easy to ask for more personal help. This was an exercise in acceptance for me, and an uplifting belief in the goodness that exists in the world, and especially in our little corner of the world. Thank you all. I am deeply touched.” • Jane in Burlington
“I am still in the midst of seeking transportation to a series of appointments. I’ve been able to find the help I need, so far. It was heartwarming to read Jane’s posting. If I need these rides again I will post on FPF. Kindness is everything. Thank-you everyone for your help.” • Judy in Burlington
“Due to the generosity of so many in this amazing community, I was emailed no less than 7 times by locals offering to run me up to the airport tomorrow. This is actually no surprise at all; this community ROCKS !! I’m all set – and I thank all of you so much for the offers of assistance…Cheers!” • George in Stowe
