Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Gravelbourg Cares Shuttle Service has cancelled their third annual family supper and dance fundraiser for February 2021.
However, the community’s past support of Gravelbourg’s one and only medical wellness shuttle service hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Gravelbourg Cares has been enabled to continue providing shuttle services to Gravelbourg and beyond.
For those who wish to continue supporting Gravelbourg Cares, the shuttle service will provide a federal income tax receipt for any monetary donation, which can be filed with annual tax returns.
Donations can be sent to Gravelbourg Cares Shuttle Service, PO Box 1043, Gravelbourg SK S0H 1X0, or by e-transfer at email@example.com.
For those who are unfamiliar with Gravelbourg Cares, here is a short overview:
The Gravelbourg Shuttle is in its 16th month of operation.
The shuttle service was built from the bottom up by volunteers wanting to help people of all ages with health issues that needed to be dealt with outside the community. This plan is working, thanks to rider support, as well as the amazing encouragement from local and out of town business donors, service clubs, private citizens and the Town of Gravelbourg, who donated $25,000 towards the shuttle purchase.
The shuttle is attracting more passengers and is travelling on an average of 15 times per month to the cities of Regina, Moose Jaw and Swift Current.
No matter what age, when anyone is dealing with medical issues, city driving, parking and road conditions can add stress.
The shuttle takes that stress away with home pick ups and drop offs at the door, where the appointments are scheduled – it doesn’t get much easier.
Out-of-town riders are picked up and dropped off at HB Junction. Assiniboia riders are dropped off or picked up at the junction of Highway’s 2 and 43.
Wellness also means more than just medical appointments. Sometimes, one needs a mental break. Before COVID, Gravelbourg Cares provided this service by joining families living apart and offering wellness excursions to local and out-of-town events.
For reservations, schedules, information and more – call the Gravelbourg Cares dispatch number at 306-650-7333 and leave the driving to us!
With the community’s help, the shuttle’s ridership is growing. Gravelbourg Cares desires to keep this shuttle as a viable service for the community and area.
Please continue to support this federal charity, as the community’s generosity is always needed to keep this service running.
