As well as the possibility of winning an amazing prize, you’ll be helping thousands of Missourians who rely on OATS Transit to get where they need to go. Since 1971, the company has provided transportation for people with disabilities, seniors and the rural general public. Annually, more than 1.5 million trips are provided statewide to those in need. Work transportation makes up 45% of the service, followed by medical, shopping, senior center service and other needs. OATS Transit is a shared ride, door-to-door transportation program in 87 Missouri counties that allows people to live independently. Statewide, the agency contracts with more than 200 agencies, businesses and cities to provide their transportation services.

The goal is to raise $20,000 through the fundraiser. For more information about OATS Transit please visit their website at www.oatstransit.org, follow them at facebook.com/oatstransit, or call us at 888-875-6287.
