$50 stolen from local organization
I am the current President of the Oconomowoc Silver Streak, Inc., a non-profit organization providing transportation service to the elderly and disabled in the Oconomowoc area since 1991. Our riders rely on Silver Streak for transportation to and from medical and dental appointments, errands, shopping and senior meal sites.
We rely on donations from the public and local governments, funding from grants as well as hundreds of volunteer hours to support our mission to provide low-cost transportation to our riders. With the rising cost of gasoline, insurance and maintenance, every dollar we receive is important.
We recently had approximately $50 stolen from one of the acrylic donation boxes that we have placed at local businesses. Seniors are the folks who built our neighborhoods, businesses, schools and churches we enjoy today. It was a sad moment when those who have provided so much to our community were taken advantage of through such a senseless act.
Gary L. Sherwin,
Silver Streak Board President
