BENEFITING: SAFERIDES INC
I was a member of SafeRides during my four years at JMU. The are plenty of opportunities in college to make destructive decisions, but SafeRides provided me with a fresh opportunity to do something positive in the community and have fun while doing it. Since it's inception in 2004, SafeRides has saved over 20,000 lives.
The wait time for a ride from SafeRides can sometimes exceed 2 hours. With more money, SafeRides can rent more cars on the weekends and save more lives.
