American Red Cross Transportation Service Discontinued in Door County Effective January 1, 2011

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter Transportation Service in Door County will be discontinued as of January 1, 2011. This service began in Door County in 2002.  Since its beginning, our mission has been to meet the transportation needs of elderly and individuals with disabilities by providing safe, reliable and affordable transportation.

The past two years has been very challenging as we have continued to operate our service in Door County.  During this time, the overall transportation environment has changed which has impacted our service.  There are now other transportation options available to Door County residents that can meet the needs going forward.

“The American Red Cross is proud of the transportation service we have provided in Door County since its beginning in early 2002,” said Steve Maricque, Executive Director, Lakeland Chapter. “We appreciate the opportunity to have served many in the community and wish to thank our dedicated volunteer drivers, funding partners and donors for their wonderful support over the years.”

Please note that this announcement impacts only our Transportation Service in Door County.  We will continue to provide Disaster Services, Services to Armed Forces and Health and Safety training.

 About the American Red Cross:

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
