We really love our ‘Friends’

Not too long ago, we began a new program called “Friends of Drive A Senior- Elgin” and we are excited about the great response we received. Drive a Senior depends on grants and donations to sustain our program and, once again, the Elgin community came through for us.

“Friends” are recognized at four different membership levels based on their annual contribution. All “Friends” will receive updates with the latest and greatest happenings from our Elgin region. This includes newsletters, upcoming events and opportunities to participate in making a difference in the lives of our clients. Forming this group has helped us expand our connections with the Elgin community and made it possible to better serve our clients.

For information about becoming a “Friend” please contact our office at 512.281.6065 or elgin@driveasenior.org.

Van program keeps local seniors on the move

Van program keeps local seniors on the move

There’s a new van in town. Thanks to a generous grant from Bluebonnet Electric we were able to purchase a new van, which we use to make group trips for our senior passengers. Most of our van trips are social outings to restaurants, museums, music shows, shopping and grocery stores. This program has been a wonderful addition to our medical transportation, as the friendships made are simply priceless.
