St. Mark’s Anglican Church’s generosity towards Access Transit expands this year

For the third year in a row, St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Iroquois Falls is paying the bill for all rides on Access Transit on two days during the holidays.

Access Transit secretary-treasurer Suzanne Castonguay says that gives seniors and people with mobility issues a chance to get Christmas shopping done, on either December 14th or the 22nd.

“They can go like ten, 12 places if they need t,” she outlines. “The driver will pick them up at home, bring them wherever they want to do and bring them back home and St. Mark’s is paying for the whole shebang.”

And this year, says Castonguay, the church is paying for the bus to deliver groceries to its clients’ homes. Phone orders are not being accepted.

“The client has to go to the grocery store himself or herself, so the groceries and then the bus driver will bring it back to them, but person has to go in person.”

This is the first year for the grocery delivery service.
