Granite Falls Health Care Center is raising funds to purchase a bus to transport residents. We need your help to reach the goal.
Granite Falls Bank will match donations up to $37,500!
Why a New Bus Is Needed
The Care Center’s current bus has numerous mechanical issues and is no longer a reliable vehicle to transport residents into the community.
Venturing out into the community helps maintain and improve the quality of life for the Care Center residents. They receive the satisfaction of being a member of the community and a sense of belonging. They attend community events, enjoy dining at restaurants, shopping trips, visits to the farmer’s market, trips to museums, fishing trips, country drives and more. These are the highlights of their days.
Learn About The New Bus
The new bus will seat up to 14 passengers depending wheelchair use and passenger needs. It will have a wheelchair lift with a 1000 lb. capacity, non-slip flooring, storage for wheelchairs and walkers, smooth ride suspension, carpet covering walls for added warmth and comfort, air conditioning and overall easier maintenance. Best of all it will be reliable and we’ll be able to plan regular outings without concern.
The goal is to have a new, reliable bus in operation by July 1, 2019.
Please help drive a solution and support the adventures of the Care Center Residents by contributing towards the bus fundraising goal of $75,000.
