Veterans in Genesee County Can Get Free Rides for Healthcare
THIS IS AMAZING AND HOW COME WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THIS BEFORE?!?!?!
Okay, so the program is pretty new, but still - we're happy to tell you about it because we just found out, too.
It's called "Vets to Wellness" and it's a partnership between Genesee County Department of Veterans Services and the Mass Transportation Authority of Flint and Genesee County. Veterans are eligible for four free rides per month from their front door to the VA hospitals in Saginaw, Detroit and/or Ann Arbor.
I can TOTALLY relate to this - I've been pushing my parents to move here to Michigan so we can help them out more (mom has MS, dad is a disabled vet), and my dad's argument was "I don't drive, how am I going to get to the VA?" Here's the answer.
