Herbie lives on!
Do you remember Herbie, the love bug? Because of you, Herbie lives on and gives to others.
Joanie, in her early 70’s, on a fixed income, found herself without a vehicle when her van broke down during the pandemic. Joanie was worried. She needed her car to get groceries, go to the doctor and help other elderly friends who couldn’t drive. She needed transportation to remain independent.
Because of the Community Foundation’s Strategic Funding Partners, a grant from Supporting Older Adults Through Resources, Inc (SOAR) provided Joanie with a used car – which she affectionately named Herbie! While Herbie is not a VW beetle, he is treasured and provides rides for Joanie and others.
