(click on picture for more information)

Helping seniors continue to live independently in their homes.

 

     The MCEF Senior Rides program assists seniors age 60+ in the Mechanicsville, Virginia area who are not able to drive.  We also provide transportation for those who may have a medical condition that requires frequent trips for medical treatments such as physical therapy, chemotherapy or dialysis.

 

     This free transportation program is for scheduled medical appointments, grocery shopping and for personal business (such as banking).  Our goal is to help seniors continue to live independently in their homes.

 

     While we offer this as a free transportation service, donations are needed to sustain the program.   We appreciate your generous gifts.


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: 
 
     MCEF may provide emergency financial assistance to help Mechanicsville residents pay essential bills and help the family avoid utility cut-off or eviction.  Most of the families who receive help are referred to MCEF by local churches or the Hanover Department of Social Services.

MCEF BENEFIT CONCERT == PATRIOT DAY == SEPTEMBER 11 == 7:00 P.M. 


You are invited to enjoy our 3rd annual evening of music presented by the John Marshall Alumni Band.

This Patriot Day Concert will be held on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 7:00pm, at Walnut Grove Baptist Church at 7046 Cold Harbor Road, Mechanicsville, VA.

The admission is $2.00 plus one nonperishable food item per person.

Patriot Day is an annual observance on September 11 to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001. Many Americans refer Patriot Day as 9/11 or September 11.

The John Marshall Alumni Band will be accompanied by a military color guard to help us recognize the sacrifices that so many members of our military have made in service to our country before and since 9/11.
