Testimonials

Jordan Brenko from Greenfield has been able to participate in festivals and has formed a bond with driver Bruce Wentzell who also takes him to the LCLC in Bridgewater on Friday nights so Jordan can volunteer for the hockey team. We also transport Jordan to all his medical appointments, bowling and adult learning centre daily.

“It is so very important for Jordan to attend a Day Program for his well-being and socialization in the Community. He would not be able to attend Penny Lane without you, due to the lack of wheelchair transportation in our area. The staff is super friendly and has built a relationship with Jordan that is amazing. So again, thank you from our entire family for being there.” – Sue Brenko
