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.

BREAKING NEWS and NEEDS HEADLINES


July 3, 2014 release by MCEF Hanover County:


The CSB (Community Services Board = Mental Health + substance abuse services) has asked for help in gathering furniture for 4-5 of their clients who are moving into their own apartments over the next few weeks.

 

Got Extra Veggies?  MCEF pantry is a good place to pass them along!  See details on News and Events page.

 

Has your church gone to a meeting or at least have the materials the Hanover Sheriff's Office sent out about Worship Watch.  Please look for it and/or go to the website: www.WorshipWatch.org.   It's based on Neighborhood Watch but it's for churches to be aware of the community around them and to notice and report any suspicious activity in their area. 

 

There will be a festival on October 18th (10-2) at the Courthouse with Christian bands playing on a professional stage and booths for each church to provide something.

 

MCEF has a new website.  This is it!  Comments? Please bring them to the July meeting on Monday, July 14, 2014. We would love to hear your reactions.   If you are using a small mobile device, you should see a "mobi" screen with a link to the full web site -- this feature is currently being developed and the splash page is live already -- more to come!
