Well, the numbers are in for our Bluebird Mobility Network for 2014 and we are thrilled! ElderPoint was blessed to have over 30 volunteer drivers throughout the year who collectively logged 80,309 miles using our vehicles and their personal vehicles. Those miles represent 406 individual passengers and a total of 4423 trips! Although the majority of trips are within the greater Lakeland area, our drivers regularly transport clients to Plant City, Tampa, and Dade City.
We are privileged to have four drivers who are dedicated to transporting our local military veterans to their appointments at the VA locations in Lakeland, Tampa, and even Orlando. These four gentlemen drove over 10,000 miles and provided 266 trips, filling a huge gap in services to our veterans, many of whom have no reliable transportation or are unable to drive themselves. Each of these drivers considers it a privilege to serve those who have served our nation.
This year promises to be even more exciting and productive! Thank you for your support of this vital ministry.
