Douglas County Recieves $2,000 from Community Foundation
OATS Transit received a grant from the Douglas County Community Foundation totaling $2,000. The grant was presented at their annual grant award event in Ava MO. OATS Transit Director Jeff Robinson (far left) attended the event to receive the check on behalf of OATS Transit.
These grant funds will be used for operating support in Douglas County Missouri to provide rides to those in need. OATS Transit provides transportation for work, medical appointments, essential shopping, nutrition and other needs to individuals with disabilities, seniors, and rural residents of any age. Our transportation programs are vital to the Missouri economy, and helping local residents live independently in their own communities.
“We are grateful that organizations like the Douglas County Community Foundation are dedicated to giving back to the communities they serve,” said Dorothy Yeager, Executive Director of OATS Transit. “Without the support from the Foundation, our transportation service would not be possible.”
Douglas County residents wanting to find out more about receiving transportation should call the OATS Transit regional office at 800-770-6287.
