Get on the Bus was the 2018 theme with a goal of raising $50,000 for a new bus for transportation of seniors. Transportation is the key to seniors’ and Mercy Endeavors’ success by providing transportation to and from the center for activities each day, places of recreation, and special events in the community. The bus is also used for vital errands such as doctor appointments, trips to the bank, drugstore, grocery store, shopping trips and visits to cultural events.

Thank you to all for supporting our seniors by purchasing a ticket to this funfilled evening and donating generous sponsorships. We look forward to the 2019 event in the Spring!
