OATS Transit receives grant from Cuivre River Electric Community Trust
(Macon, Missouri, June 8, 2021) – OATS Transit, a Missouri based not-for-profit transportation provider, announced today that it has received a grant from Cuivre River Electric Community Trust Operation Round Up program totaling $4,000.
These funds will be used toward the local match on a new vehicle for Lincoln County Missouri. 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 throughout Lincoln County. OATS Transit has proudly served Missourians for the last 50 years. We operate both The Linc and OATS Transit services in Lincoln County.
“One of the guiding principles of being a member-owned cooperative is concern for community,” said Tim Schmidt, who coordinates the Operation Round Up for Cuivre River Electric. “Each month we put thousands of dollars into our communities thanks to the generosity of our members who ‘round up’ their bills. We’re glad we can help organizations like OATS Transit which play a key role in making sure people in our communities have access to reliable transportation,” added Schmidt.
“We are grateful that organizations like the Cuivre River and their Operation Round Up program are dedicated to giving back to the communities,” said Dorothy Yeager, Executive Director of OATS Transit. “Without the support from Cuivre River, these purchases would not be possible,” added Yeager.
