[May 16, 2008]  Community Action announced Thursday that it is in need of a new-at-least-to-them vehicle. The agency has been providing transportation to seniors for over 30 years in Logan and Mason counties.

Currently the program fleet consists of two sedans and three wheelchair-accessible vans. One of their sedans, a 1998 Buick, is on its last legs, and the program is trying to make plans for its replacement.

"The Buick has been a great car for the program. It was donated to us in Robert McShane's name a few years ago. We are so thankful to have had the vehicle, but we just found out that we can expect the motor to go at any time," said Angie Jenkins, senior programs director at Community Action.

The program is asking for community support from local auto dealers, auto repair businesses or private citizens who might have a vehicle that would fill the potential gap. The transportation program for seniors provides over 16,000 rides to residents age 60 or better each year. The new vehicle would be used and stationed in the county that donated it to the program.

Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois is a private, nonprofit organization serving seniors and low-income citizens in six central Illinois counties. As a 501(c)3 organization, all donations are tax-deductible. For more information about Community Action, visit
