Volunteer Transportation Center, Inc. Watertown, NY
2018 Alexandria Bay Immediate Need Recipient
Volunteer Transportation Center, Inc. improves health and wellness for the community by ensuring those with no other means of transportation are able to keep medical and dental appointments, receive life sustaining treatments such as chemo therapy and renal dialysis, and go grocery shopping at least once a month. This program allows our clients to maintain their own residence thus providing them with a sense of independence fostering self-confidence and self-esteem. $1,500 would provide roughly 2,400 miles or 90 one-way trips for local seniors/disabled who otherwise would not be able to make it to critical appointments.
