The theme of this year’s gala, Driving Care Forward, spotlighted how On Lok’s transportation services help seniors remain living in their community. Our drivers traveled 930,000 miles last year to transport our participants safely to medical appointments and to deliver nutritious meals, medicine, and essential supplies to home-bound older adults. With over 250,000 trips provided annually, On Lok transportation services are an integral part of our programs to support the health and independence of low-income older adults. Watch the positive impact of On Lok’s transportation services in this video.
