‘Thank you hardy feels like it is enough’

The note is simple but touching, genuine and sincere.

“Thank you hardly feels like it is enough to express our gratitude,” Sarah Norman of the St. George and Area Food Bank wrote. “Thank you for giving us that piece of mind….”

Sarah and others at the food bank fretted about so many of their clients who had no car to get there to pick up the groceries that they needed just to put food on the table for their families.

“Thank you, Dial A Ride and your volunteers.”

The Charlotte County Alternative Transportation Association’s Dial A Ride program, funded by the United Way, helps food bank clients – and many others – get to where they need to go.

People from all walks of life in the county use the service to get to work and to attend important appointments. A new resident of St. Stephen relies on the dial a ride program to get to her job at Ganong Brothers Ltd. Another uses it to attend meetings at the Multicultural Association of Charlotte County.

Charlotte Dial A Ride gives people a peace of mind and helping hand they would not otherwise have, thanks in part to the generous donors of United Way.
