NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce formally recognizes the impact seniors have on the economy by holding a symbolic ribbon cutting at the New Rochelle Future offices on Wednesday, March 16, for the newly launched not-for-profit New Rochelle Cares AIP, an organization dedicated to supporting New Rochelle residents who are 60 plus.

A full membership in New Rochelle Cares entitles members to no cost rides. Friends and relatives are freed up and seniors do not feel indebted. Membership includes discounts by the Chamber and significant other benefits.

To join, you must be a 60 plus New Rochelle resident without independent driving options who could benefit from no-cost transportation and other services. Membership is $180 a year and includes a full host of activities in addition to the free rides.

WestFair Rides provides the drivers for medically related needs of New Rochelle Cares AIP members, in addition to serving seniors countywide. WestFair Rides thoroughly vets volunteer drivers to deliver their no-cost rides.

“This larger effort, which helps seniors to stay in their homes, cannot be underestimated," said Bob Marrone, executive director of the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce.

The event will take place at 5:30 p.m. at NR Future, 247 North Ave.

“Our volunteers develop warm relationships with the people they serve. They enjoy the special reward of knowing they are the lifeblood of independent living for many of Westchester seniors”, added Catherine Wynkoop, president of WestFair Rides.

As a gift introduction, New Rochelle Cares is awarding one free one-year full membership. A lucky winner will be randomly drawn during the ribbon cutting.

During the event, New Rochelle Cares hopes to attract volunteers who will become drivers and New Rochelle residents in need of the services.
