The Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) are looking to help support their medical transport program.
“One of the best parts of the program is that really, we’re only a phone call away. If someone needs a ride to their appointment, all they need to do is pick up the phone, call us, and within that day we’ll get a message back to them, telling them when we can pick them up, and if we need a special vehicle, such as a wheelchair transport or if a sedan is appropriate. Often times, the person you’re taking to their appointment is a little apprehensive, y’know, they might get some bad news and they might need someone to talk to about that on the way home, so being receptive to those comments is very, very important.” – Paul Bruchman, Medical Transport Program Coordinator.
They are hosting a pancake breakfast to raise funds for this necessary program.
“Well we just invite people to come out and join us. It’s a great event for a great cause supporting our medical transportation program. It’s $7 per person with [children] 7 and under eating free. and then we’re going to have blueberry pancakes, and buttermilk pancakes, and then sausage. So it’s a great event, and it’s going to be a good time for all.” – Amber Goodman, Donor Relations Manager
