Contributed by: Dixon Hall. On Thursday, September 12th from 2:00pm – 3:00pm, Dixon Hall is hosting a small celebration to officially launch our new bus! Our new bus will serve our Seniors Department, which supports seniors and adults with disabilities in the downtown east, enabling them to live independently, remain at home, and maintain community connections. This important vehicle will be in operation seven days per week, supporting multiple programs.
Every week, our new bus will:
• Make 12 round trips to transport 75 participants in our seniors’ day programs, including both Adult Day and Alzheimer Day programs, where seniors socialize and participate in fun activities;
• Deliver nutritious meals daily to seniors and adults with disabilities through Meals on Wheels, resulting in an annual delivery of almost 10,000 meals to 440 clients;
• Pick up and drop off corporate volunteers at least 8 times, who comprise a significant portion of our volunteer base
Join us on September 12th at 192 Carlton St. to celebrate this agency achievement and share goodwill and cheer. Event will feature remarks from our CEO, Mercedes Watson, MPP Suze Morrison, and a special thank you from seniors in our Day Programs. Light refreshments will be served. Rain or shine event.
