Blenheim Rotary Club Donates Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle to Family Service Kent
Blenheim Rotary Club has partnered with Family Service Kent to help continuously improve our community by donating an accessible vehicle that can hold 2 to 3 passengers using wheelchairs and 4 walk on passengers. Rotary is the largest and the oldest Service Club in the world and takes an interest in the concerns of our community as well as in the special needs of individuals. This mandate is a perfect fit with Family Service Kent’s vision that every person within Chatham-Kent to have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
The donated vehicle will allow individuals and families age 0-60 to have an affordable, accessible transportation option to access destinations outside of Chatham-Kent, a service which had not been offered in the past for this demographic. All transportation fares will be based on passengers’ ability to pay. The rates operate on a sliding scale and are determined by filling out an Application for Service and providing proof of combined gross household income. The program began accepting referrals from the general public on November 1, 2019.
