New set of wheels for Sterling Presbyterian Manor

Sterling Presbyterian Manor’s new van.

Thanks to a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (K-DOT), Sterling Presbyterian Manor was able to purchase an additional transportation van. This shiny new ride will not only help residents at Presbyterian Manor, but Sterling community members as well.

Residents enjoyed an outing in the new van.

“Being without transportation is frustrating and can make seniors feel like they’ve really lost their independence. By offering this service, residents and community members can simply call and schedule a ride and be taken to run errands, visit the doctor, go shopping, or even on fun outings,” said Genny Gillespie, transportation assistant.

This is the second vehicle that was provided by the K-DOT program, and we’re grateful for the continued and expanded opportunity to help residents and the community.

To schedule a ride, contact Genny at 620-278-3651, ext. 3144, and leave a message if she’s not able to answer. She likes to schedule rides about a week in advance. Rides are free, but a donation for van upkeep and maintenance is greatly appreciated.
