Provide a summary of the project or program:
           The Council needs money to expand some of the vital programs that we provide. We live in a very rural area and need more transportation funds to provide transit to the doctor, hospital, shopping, drug store, any other medical visits or necessary trips. Many of our Seniors have no family around and few friends to draw help from. This is such a necessary program! This program and others can help the Senior remain in the home and avoid early institutionalization. It's proven to cost less to keep them home than to send them to a nursing home. But they must have needed services to remain at home.
