This month we’d like to give thanks to Lee Lombard. Lee is one of our Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. In fact he is one of our top TAP drivers, consistently in the top three for miles driven and hours. He came to the center nearly five years ago, just looking to donate some books, when he happened to see a TAP flyer on the board. He asked the Front Desk person what TAP was, and she took him straight to the TAP coordinator. That was all it took, and he=s been driving ever since. He now drives every weekday, and even on weekends, sometimes taking 2 rides a day. He drives all over the Inland Empire which doesn’t leave him much time to explore the fun things our center has to offer, but he hopes to get involved soon. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, his father’s travels in the Air Force eventually brought him out to March AFB in Riverside, and he=s been here ever since. He did a stint in the Air Force, where he got trained in Military Pay, which helped him after he left, to get into Money Management, which he turned into a 30 year career as a banker and financial advisor. Now single, he has a daughter and two grandsons. Thanks Lee stepping up big time into this important program.

Featured Activity

A new program has been created through Amazon, the online e-commerce business. AmazonSmile is a program where Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organizations selected by it's customers.

We were recently informed by Amazon that several of their customers had selected to support the Highland District Council On Aging (i.e. the Highland Senior Center). To support the center, instead of going to www.amazon.com, shop at AmazonSmile (http://smile.amazon.com) where you can buy the exact same things you would at their normal site, and the same prices. We did check it out and it's legit. So continue to shop at Amazon and help out your Senior Center at the same time.
