The Senior Connection wins the Grand STAR Award, including a Toyota Prius
The National Volunteer Transportation Center (NVTC) announced the winners for the 15th Annual STAR Awards which recognize outstanding volunteer transportation programs across the country. The Senior Connection was selected as the Grand STAR Award winner, which includes a Toyota Prius. The NVTC also awarded a total of $50,000 to 15 other volunteer transportation service providers. To date, more than 130 STAR Awards have been conveyed to senior and volunteer transportation programs. NVTC is grateful to have the support of Toyota as an awards program sponsor.
