Silicon Valley Gives! - May 6, 2014
WITH YOUR HELP, NON-DRIVING SENIORS STAY HEALTHY AND INDEPENDENT!
Did you know that 30% of seniors in San Mateo County report having a disability, often preventing them from driving?
Get Up & Go provides the personalized, supportive transportation they need to get to their doctors’ appointments, the grocery store, and social activities that keep them connected.
In our last survey, 9 out of 10 riders reported the program had a positive impact on their quality of life and helped them remain living at home.
“ I feel less insecure about my loss of driving since the PJCC has come to the rescue.” – Ruth
“The transportation and (getting to) Physical Therapy…is vital.” - Terry (Parkinson’s disease)
“I am blind and am very happy with Get Up & Go and the service it provides for me to get where I need to go.” – Gloria
Donate to Get Up & Go through Silicon Valley Gives, so non-driving seniors can stay happy, healthy and independent.
