3P Ride, Inc. received a $50,000 Veterans Trust Fund grant for Veterans’ transportation to medical care for a total of five central Pennsylvania counties, including York County.  3P Ride is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed by rabbittransit. While some Veterans’ transportation exists, the grant allows for an expansion into Adams, Dauphin, Cumberland and Columbia counties.
 
“3P Ride and rabbittransit have provided nearly 10,000 trips for Veterans to the Lebanon VA Hospital.  To be able to offer connections to Veterans is a privilege and these funds help make that possible. Financial support allows us the opportunity to meet the medical travel needs of many of our residents who served our country,” comments Richard Farr, 3P Ride Director.  
 
The Veterans’ Trust Fund grant was awarded to 29 Pennsylvania organizations that support veterans’ programs throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Veterans’ Trust Fund is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA).
