Titus/OBCDC Obtains Van For Elderly, Disabled
A new means for transporting seniors living in the Rockaways was unveiled last week when the ribbon was cut on a new Chrysler Town & Country van, equipped with seating for eight and room for wheelchair passengers. Taking part in the May 14 ceremony, outside Ocean Bay Houses, were representatives from Ocean Bay Community Development Corporation, Assemblywoman Michele Titus - who obtained money for the van - and community leaders.
"We are so thankful that Assemblywoman Titus responded without hesitation to our request for this van to assist us in helping our seniors to be able to live independently in their home community," said Pat Simon, the executive director of OBCDC.
Use of the van will be by appointment only. For more information contact Bernadette Luina at OBCDC at 718-945-8640.
