Bossier Council on Aging receives grant in support of medical eye care rides

The Bossier Council on Aging has been selected to receive an ITNAmerica “Trusted Transportation Partner” grant, with support from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. 

ITNAmerica awards TTP grants to well-respected transportation nonprofits to support free or discounted rides to medical eye care appointments.

This $2,000 grant will allow BCOA to provide older adults and visually impaired community members with free transportation to eye care services.

This award also recognizes Bossier Council on Aging as offering the highest quality transportation services for seniors.

They are one of 35 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive this recognition, and one of two organizations in Bossier Parish

“If you have been putting off a visit to your eye doctor, now is the time to call for a ride,” BCOA director Tamara Crane said via a press release. “Whether it’s an ophthalmologist appointment, the optometrist, or even just a ride to get prescription eye glasses, Bossier Council on Aging can get you there.”
