In 1919, a Flu Epidemic was the genesis for starting what would grow, over time, into a transportation lifeline for our community. Area public health nurses initially organized a service, staffed by volunteer drivers, to transport doctors and nurses to flu victims. Charitable donations allowed the fledgling organization to stay afloat and in 1931 to formally incorporate as Medical Motor Service and expand the agency’s mission to include serving area hospitals, clinics and social service agencies. Now 100 years later, our community is experiencing a similar epidemic.
For Medical Motor Service, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented business slowdown with many of our client locations remaining either closed or on a limited schedule of activity; however, there are still many of our neighbors who need us for critical health appointments. The individuals that we serve are the elderly and people with significant developmental challenges. A large percentage of our work supports those who require wheelchair transportation to and from appointments.
While we continue to adjust our operations to support our clients with safe, socially distant transportation, we turn to our dedicated supporters to provide assistance, so that we can get our passengers where they need to go. Your contribution will be used to help us house, repair, operate, maintain and dispatch our vehicles so we can serve the people who continue to count on us as a vital lifeline. In making a contribution, please know that what you are also doing is touching a life.
You can help Medical Motor Service ensure that its important work continues to support elderly individuals and those with disabilities and special needs through a donation on 11.30.21.
