Transportation for Seniors

In 2017, FCF funded a grant to the @Senior Resource Center to purchase a 2012 Chevrolet Eclipse SUV. This vehicle replaces the minivan previously donated by the Freeport Community Foundation that would no longer pass a vehicle inspection.

SRC volunteers use this SUV to transport seniors and disabled adults to medical appointments outside Stephenson County. Accessing transportation to appointments outside of the Stephenson County area is difficult for seniors who do not drive and do not have family or friends that can provide a ride. Pretzel City Area Transit does not travel outside of Stephenson County so these individuals find themselves unable to get to appointments in towns such as Rockford, Monroe, or Madison.
