STC breaks down an important barrier for seniors who wish to keep active, learn and enjoy a healthy meal at our center. I am honored to join the board and look forward to learning as well as contributing to the STC leadership.”

Help STC Get Going on #GivingTuesday

Nov. 28  is #GivingTuesday - Your gift to STC keeps seniors on the go!
Senior Transportation Connection joins charities across the U.S. in giving thanks on #GivingTuesday. We ask you to contribute to our Mission to provide accessible transportation to older adults. Passengers Barbara and Allan recently talked with us about why they value STC:
“The drivers are prompt & helpful.” “The bus is clean.” “I don’t have to depend on someone to get where I need to go.”
Each year, STC covers one million miles across Cuyahoga County, in all weather and road conditions, delivering over 100,000 trips.  Donations are essential to keep the STC fleet in top form. They pay for driver training and the latest scheduling software. But, it's more than that -- Your donation helps Allan get to the senior center for lunch, or Barbara to see her doctor. Your donation helps to connect our passengers with the destinations that keep them healthy and independent!
Please give the gift of independence and mobility to thousands of Cuyahoga County seniors. Support Senior Transportation Connection & keep our passengers connected, healthy and part of our community. Make your gift here today!
Thank you for your #GivingTuesday gift to STC.
