OOD Receives Van Donation

Opportunity on Deck, along with Oakridge Neighborhood Services and Children and Families of Iowa recently received retired RideShare vans through DART’s van donation program.

“We are grateful to DART for this generous donation. This donation will allow us to provide a new service to families who might have transportation as a barrier to attending our clinics and other activies,” said Opportunity on Deck executive director Dylan DeClerck.

The van donation program was started by the DART Board of Commissioners in 2014 to help meet transit needs of community organizations by donating RideShare vans that were being retired from DART’s fleet. This year, fifteen organizations applied for the vans.
