Let's Go Borrego
BVEF is continuing its focus on seniors by helping to fund this six-month pilot program. We are supporting this community effort to help seniors get rides for medical needs if they are not able to drive themselves.
The Volunteer Driver Program was initiated by the Borrego Springs Revitalization Economic Development Subcommittee and is administered through the Borrego Springs Senior Center. It helps seniors who depend on others to drive them to pick up groceries/food and go to medical appointments, including doctor visits, optical, dental, and physical therapy. Let's Go Borrego pays seniors $0.50 per mile to reimburse their drivers. This pilot program began in September 2020.
