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.
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, Please make you check to the Easthampton Council on Aging, 19 Union Street.
Thank you for YOUR SUPPORT!! Your donations have helped raise $2282.00 total for FY’16. Thank you!!
