Grant to Help Seniors With Transportation Services

The Kearsarge Area Council on Aging (KCOA) helps to promote, develop and reinforce programs that support and enhance the health, well-being dignity, and independence of older people. They deliver a critical public service for seniors in nine Kearsarge-area communities, providing safe transportation, door-to-door, as far north as Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and as far south as Concord Medical Center.

A BCAF $3,500 grant was provided to help their transportation program, which offers free services to seniors in the Upper Valley. With 59 volunteer drivers and 118 clients, they serve a challenging geographic part of New Hampshire.

On hand to present the check was corporate secretary to the Bishop’s Charitable Assistance Fund, Bradford Cook, Esq. Cook said, “The Bishop’s Charitable Assistance Fund is so pleased to be able to help the Kearsarge Area Council on Aging continue to offer free transportation services to seniors in the Upper Valley. As a homeowner in New London, I am especially pleased this important work is being supported, as I see the results often.”
