Sound Generations Thanks Des Moines Legacy Foundation for Funds to Keep HYDE Shuttle 5 Days a week
Below is a thank you from Ms. Cindy Zwart, Transportation Program Director at Sound Generations (previously Senior Services) to the Board of Directors of the Des Moines Legacy Foundation:
Dear Legacy Foundation:
Thank you so much for your support of the Des Moines/Normandy Park HYDE Shuttle! Our service makes a huge difference in the lives of seniors and people with disabilities, enabling them to access all the life-sustaining and life-enriching activities that contribute to quality of life. It is challenging to recruit sufficient volunteers to maintain the shuttle on the road five days a week and serve the community. Your funding ensures a more reliable service for the community. I also want to thank you for exemplifying the spirit of volunteerism through your own work with the foundation. Thanks for caring. Cindy Zwart
The Des Moines Legacy Foundation voted to approve $5,677 from Bayside Brunch funds to provide a paid driver for the local HYDE shuttle for one day a week through the end of 2016, keeping the local, donation only transportation service at five days a week.. Thanks to all of you who support our annual champagne brunch fundraiser at Anthony's Homeport in Des Moines. 16 years of fundraising and fun have allowed the Des Moines Legacy Foundation to truly support older adult programs and services in our community. WE ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
