The Easthampton Council on Aging Senior Companion Program provides transportation to our clients who are not able to utilize existing transportation options or who require one-on-one supervision/assistance. Funding for this program was cut significantly from $7300.00 to $2500.00 beginning on October 1st 2017..
WE NEED YOUR HELP so that we can continue to provide our clients with a critical service - ride to medical appointments, grocery shopping, prescription drug pick-up, and friendly visiting/respite.
We are asking you to help us by considering a donation of at least $5.00. Our average cost for a ride within Easthampton is $9.00; Northampton - $13.00; Amherst or Holyoke - $17.00; Westfield - $18.00 and Springfield - $20.00. This program is free to our clients with donations graciously accepted.
If you wish to "Sponsor A Ride " and help lower income/ limited ability seniors to get to necessary medical and food shopping appointments..., Please make your check out to the Easthampton Council on Aging, 19 Union Street.
Thank you for YOUR SUPPORT!!
