Complimentary shuttle service for Brigade Days

The shuttle will run regularly between Silver Creek, Kawkawa Lake and downtown Hope

Local seniors and individuals with mobility needs will have a new and convenient way to get to this year’s Hope Brigade Days festivities, thanks to a complimentary shuttle service provided by Envision Financial and Care Transit.

The shuttle will run regularly between Silver Creek, Kawkawa Lake and downtown Hope Sept. 7-9.

“At Envision, we want to create a meaningful difference in our local communities,” said Cindy Helmer, branch manager for Envision Financial in Hope.

“Providing this complimentary shuttle service to local residents with no other means of transporting themselves is just one simple way we’re living out that goal.”

Care Transit is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life and enabling greater independence for individuals in the community by providing transportation.

Envision Financial has contributed more than $13,500 to CareTransit Society since 2007.

In 2011, there were over 425 rides, which is a 10 percent increase over 2010. The individuals and families receiving service from Care Transit all have difficulty finding transportation to their health related appointments.

The schedule for the shuttle service can be found online at envisionfinancial.ca/Personal/CorporateCitizenship/CommunityHighlights.
