Employee Community Action Council "Transportation Angel” for March

The General Dynamics Employee’s Community Action Council (ECAC) named "Transportation Angel” Sponsor for March.  Late December, ECAC awarded JUMP a $1,500 grant which will help decrease the biggest barriers to maintain a healthy balanced lively hood and emotional wellbeing - transportation.

 

Welcomed, the ECAC’s awarded grant will sponsor more than 50% of all JUMP client transportation support needs March; whether gas assistance, bus pass assistance or bike assistance. 

 

While the traditional identified “basic needs” are food, shelter and clothing; in reality the minimum prioritized level of “basic needs” have moved to include transportation assistance, healthcare, education, sanitation, and internet. At JUMP the most prioritized level is transportation assistance.

 

What clients really need most -- Transportation assistance support. Because, the inability to afford basic needs, diminishes human dignity, resulting in lack of ability to participate effectively in society.   

--Thank you & Congratulations ECAC!
