Elizabeth River Crossings has awarded Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia a $10,000 grant for its I-Ride transportation program.
The gift will be used to support transportation for older adults in Western Tidewater and Portsmouth. Specifically, the funds will go toward transportation-related administrative, overhead and program expenses.
“We are so grateful for the continued partnership of Elizabeth River Crossings,” said Steve Zollos, chief executive officer of Senior Services. “Thanks to their generosity and support, we can continue to provide safe, affordable, and reliable transportation to older adults throughout the region.”
Elizabeth River Crossings, operators of the Downtown Tunnel, Midtown Tunnel and the MLK Expressway, has made donations to several organizations and initiatives as part of its community impact efforts.
“As a transportation company, we know access is crucial. We’re proud to support Senior Services’ efforts to provide safe, reliable transport options to doctor’s appointments, dialysis visits, adult day care, or any location that adults 60+ need to get to,” says Anna Bonet, chief executive officer.
