Moberly Park Manor Foundation present a $1,000 cheque for the Seniors' Volunteer Medical Transportation Program

Members of the Board of Directors for the Moberly Park Manor Foundation gathered at the Revelstoke Seniors Centre on June 21 to present a cheque for the Volunteer Medical Transportation Program. Revelstoke Senior Citizens’ Association (RSCA) president Ruth Boettger gratefully accepted a cheque for $1,000 from Sam Olynyk, Irene Murphy , Alan Kepler and Val Barry.

The program provides transportation to out of town medical appointments for individuals in our community, has seen a dramatic increase in usage in the last four months, said Jean Pedersen, volunteer coordinator with the seniors’ association. The funds donated help to pay fuel expenses for the medical drives that caring volunteers provide. The program has been well received in the community and had grown steadily over the last two years.

Pedersen said the sudden increase was a bit of a surprise, but  the volunteer drivers really come through for the program, enabling individuals in the community to meet their medical needs.

The RSCA and the program coordinator wished to thank the Moberly Park Manor Foundation for their generous donation to this valuable community program. They also thanked the volunteer drivers who make it all possible.

For more information about the program, please call 250-837-9456, Tuesday through Friday between 9 and noon.
