  • will help individuals take part in God’s plan. Work is part of God’s plan for man. The Bible says (Genesis 2:15) “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” Jesus worked as a carpenter (Mark 6:3) as well as a teacher and healer. Paul was a tentmaker who preached what he practiced, telling early Christians (1Thess. 4:12) “to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly …and be dependent on no one”.
  • will be used to subsidize rides. RTW operates as a ‘fee–for–service’ non-profit offering low cost rides from central locations in Oconee County to various places of employment in the Oconee County area. Riders pay a small amount ($5 per day) and RTW pays the rest of the cost (typically $15-30 per day). Riders are expected to save money once they are working and work toward affording their own transportation as soon as possible.
  • is a solution to unemployment problems in our area. Oconee County is currently blessed with a vibrant economy – hundreds of jobs are available for people with a High School diploma! Wonderful local organizations such as SC Works, Goodwill Job Connection, SC Vocational Rehabilitation Development, Our Daily Rest, and many Staffing Agencies to help place people in these jobs. But these organizations also say that a significant job inhibitor is the lack of reliable transportation to someone’s potential place of employment. Some people who want to work cannot get a job because they have no way to get there. Others may have lost their job due to spotty attendance caused by transportation issues. The current CAT bus route does a good job of getting people from downtown Seneca to the Hospital, Wal-Mart, etc., but does not go to Westminster, Walhalla or West Union. Neither does it go near many of the major businesses in Oconee County. Another problem for those who work second and third shift is that the CAT bus only operates from 6am to 6pm M-F in our area.
  • is tax deductible. Ride To Work Ministry Nonprofit, Inc. is registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in South Carolina and is exempt from taxes under the Federal Income tax code. An all-volunteer Board of Directors oversees the operations and our work is done by volunteers. There are no paid positions. Even payments made for the rides put people to work locally because rides are contracted to UBER drivers or a local taxi service. We are not affiliated with a specific church, but some local ones offer use of their facilities, rider identification and other support.
