Members of Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN) recently voted to allocate $200 to Town Taxi specifically designated for patients of Franklin Memorial Hospital who need a taxi ride home from the hospital or from one of its on-campus medical practices.
To request a taxi, call Town Taxi at 860-8646.
The money has been given to Rod Judkins, owner of Town Taxi, for this purpose who will let Neighbors Helping Neighbors know when the funds have been depleted.
NHN hopes this service will be used by any hospital department or Franklin Health medical practice that has a patient in need of a ride.
Gerald Cayer, Franklin Community Health Network executive vice president commented, “There is a transportation need in the community and this donation helps bridge the gap.” Cayer thanked the members of NHN for their generous contribution to the taxi service to be used for Franklin Memorial Hospital patients.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a community-based organization benefiting Franklin County residents and organizations. NHN has raised money by hosting a scavenger hunt and barn dance, and plans are underway for an April fool’s treasure hunt.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors is currently in its organizational phase and hopes to become a local nonprofit organization. Until that time, fund raising efforts are staged non-charity events and activities. NHN does not require any form of membership dues.
