OATS Transit receives grant from Table Rock Lake Community Foundation
(Springfield, Missouri, September 17, 2020) – OATS Transit, a Missouri based not-for-profit transportation provider, announce that they have received a grant from Table Rock Lake Community Foundation totaling $3,000. The funds were made possible by the Charlotte Bostwick Endowment Fund, through the Community Foundation of the Ozarks- Table Rock Lake Community Foundation.
These grant funds will be used toward the purchase of a new bus for Stone 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.
“When a Foundation steps up and generously offers to help, like Table Rock Lake Community Foundation has done, it really helps with bus match and is greatly appreciated,” said Dorothy Yeager, Executive Director of OATS Transit. “Without the support from the Community Foundation, our transportation service would not be possible,” added Yeager.
