Care-A-Van shuttle provides senior transportation

In addition, the program received a donated cellular phone with minutes for volunteer drivers to use in case of emergency situations from United Healthcare.

"We want to thank them for their generous donation," Conley said.

If you would like to take advantage of this service, which costs $1 for a round trip to Clay and $2 for a round trip to North Syracuse (charges are designed to cover the cost of fuel), you should call Laurange at 638-0097. Pre-registration is required for the program and participating seniors must sign a waiver. If you are interested in volunteering as either a driver or escort, call Conley at 638-0251.
