Clients with Community Living Belleville and Area will be getting around in style and with ease, now that the organization has purchased a new accessible van.
CLBA was able to buy both the accessible van and another non-accessible one through a pair of grants, from the CBLA Foundation and the Parrott Foundation, to cover the cost.
The Parrott foundation funded two thirds of the project with a $75,000 grant, while the CBLA Foundation funded the other third with money raisde at the 35th annual Mayors’ Challenge Golf Tournament, which brought in a record $22,000.
The accessible 2018 Dodge Ram Promaster provides a number of flexible seating arrangements for patients in wheelchairs and those who can walk on their own.
The other non-accessible van has yet to be delivered.
