Mike Murphy knows that all he needs to help out his elderly neighbors is a car.
Murphy has been a volunteer with DriveASenior for almost two years. He drives 96-year-old Hannah Hyman around once a week.
"Many would find it very difficult to live independently without a little bit of assistance," he said.
It's assistance he says he's happy to offer his older neighbors.
"My life's been blessed and I've had a lot of good things, and I like to be able to do something to help others," Murphy said.
And others are grateful for the service.
"Why I appreciate it so much is I don't have to burden my family," Hyman said. "It's just been a wonderful experience for me."
The experience is easy for volunteers. Once you sign up with your zip code, DriveASenior will issue you rides near your home. Typical rides include trips to the grocery store, beauty salon or doctor's office.
"I usually bring a Kindle to look at and read while they're in the appointment, and then stay there for the duration then drive them back," Murphy said.
It's his way to give back while also paying it forward.
"I mean, I'm 68," Murphy said. "At some point, I'll probably give up driving, so it's something I can do now that I may need later."
