Community Resources for Independent Seniors was formed to address these needs and the first service developed was Community Area Transportation in May 2010.
CRIS-CAT, provides free transportation to residents over 55 of Cazenovia, Nelson and Fenner for medical appointments, shopping, errands and social events. Rides are dependent on the availability of drivers.
Residents may call 655-0612. It is asked that people call three to five days prior to needing a ride. A scheduler will contact a driver with the details and the driver will contact the rider to schedule the ride.
Those interested in volunteering may also call 655-0612, leave a message and Steve Burrell will provide details of the program. CRIS is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax deductible.
