New car helps connect patients to vital medical appointments
Donors purchased a new car for Community Connections, a service that offers free rides to medical appointments for county residents who have limited options for transportation. Besides local trips, the program provides transportation to and from clinics in the Portland area.
All that driving takes a toll on the program’s vehicles. It became crucial to replace the current car. “We can now use the older car locally, and our driver Jodi can transport clients to Portland in the new Toyota Rav4 with no worries,” said Mark Squire, volunteer coordinator.
