Rev Up Independence Donation Drive Kicks Into Gear at Community Living Huntsville

Community Living Huntsville says it’s time to “rev up independence” in North Muskoka.

The organization has launched the Rev Up Independence Donation Drive with the goal of raising fifty thousand dollars for a new wheelchair-accessible vehicle. Community Engagement Specialist Jennifer Jerrett says that their current “bulky cube van” is “less than reliable these days, [and] is also impractical for the people [they] support.”

A new, more discrete vehicle could make a significant difference for community members who depend on readily available, accessible transportation. While the not-for-profit receives provincial funds to offer programs and services, it relies on donations and fundraised dollars for capital expenses, like a new vehicle.
