Dear Friend,

This is an extraordinary year like no other in our memory — for STC as an organization, for each of us personally, and for the 11,587 seniors who rely on us. The freedom that each of us enjoys changed this year. We stayed home. We missed gatherings with friends and family. Now more than ever, we understand what the loss of independence and mobility means — and what it means for the seniors who ride our buses.

Just like us, our riders were lonely. They felt isolated. They reached out to STC not only for a ride, but for connection, to our drivers, and our call center team. Marti, our call center manager, shared one of those stories with me recently. Gertie, a long-time rider who made weekly trips to the grocery store and her doctor's office called one Thursday. And, she called again later that day, and again a few hours later. And, she called toward the end of Marti's shift. Gertie called four times that day. Why? Marti's voice was the only voice she had heard that week — and she just wanted a warm and friendly connection to feel like she wasn't so isolated and alone.

When Gertie needed STC, we were there. When our 11,587 seniors needed their prescriptions, a visit to their doctor, and groceries to make their dinner, STC was there.

Since March, we provided 21,447 rides to help our seniors stay mobile. Stay independent. Stay connected. STC kept our buses on the road in 27 communities throughout Cuyahoga County. We reduced the number of riders on each bus so that seniors felt safe. We made more trips with more buses. Our drivers ensured that our buses were clean, safe, and ready for every rider, every day.

STC went the extra mile for our seniors this year.
Will you go the extra mile with us?

Your kindness and generosity today means more than ever. Your donation gives the gift of mobility and independence. Your gift keeps seniors connected — and the closeness of being part of the world around us. For many seniors, STC is like family. You are an important part of our STC family. Your extraordinary kindness puts the connection in Senior Transportation Connection when you help keep our fleet on the road and at the door for our seniors.

Thank you for giving generously this year.

Warm Regards,
