Amplify Austin, the annual one-day “give-a-thon” for Central Texas, raised $83,327.13 for the Drive a Senior Network in this year. The generous support of more than 370 individual donors topped our 2017 goal by $3,500 and surpassed last year’s figure by just over $30,000. Drive a Senior finished the day in the Top 20 recipients among non-profit participants.
Last year Drive a Senior provided 36,000 rides to more than 2500 of our senior neighbors. This year we hope to add 100 volunteer drivers and expect to offer about 40,000 rides.
