NEW BUS ALLOWS THE PETOSKEY SALVATION ARMY TO BETTER SERVE MOBILITY CHALLENGED RESIDENTS
September 19, 2017, Petoskey, MI- The Salvation Army, Petoskey Corps purchased a new handicap accessible bus that features a lift in order to better serve people residing in Emmet, Charlevoix and Antrim Counties. The bus will allow The Salvation Army to transport disabled residents of senior apartment communities, shelters, and other low-income housing establishments. This will provide access to Friday night Community Dinners and many other community events and services that fall outside the regular business hours offered by other local transportation systems.
“Part of our mission is to provide services to our most vulnerable folks. Mobility challenged seniors desperately need the socialization and fellowship our Friday Night Live Community Dinners provide. We now have a way for seniors and other disabled residents with mobility challenges to participate in this event and other events we are blessed to provide” says Envoy Greg Irwin.
