After about 10 years of funding our Expanded Transportation Options Program, which takes the Elderly and Disabled to out of county medical appointments. We currently provide over 5,000 rides a year in Medina County for FREE.
The program abruptly lost United Way funding. This was a huge financial blow to our small agency. We did a lot of searching for funding and with the help of the American Red Cross, we are in a good financial situation.
The American Red Cross Medina, Summit, and Portage Chapters was a strong ally in the medical appointment transportation department, and with their merger of the three counties, graciously gave us two huge long standing Medina County fundraisers; the Twin Sizzler and the Chocolate Festival.
