This month we’d like to shine the light on Don Harper is one of our longtime Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) drivers. Don has been a member for about 7 ½ years, and has been driving for 5 ½ years. During that time he has become one of our go-to drivers driving multiple times a week, and sometimes several trips in one day. He first heard about the center from his mother-in-law, who is a Wii Bowler. She got him a membership and he came and joined the Wii Bowling league. He then remembered then Outreach Director, Holly Andrade, talking about TAP and how they needed drivers. He gave it a test drive, enjoyed it and has been doing it ever since. He loves driving, and loves the people. He thinks of this as his job, but a job he enjoys. The clients love him too and has clients who ask for him. Originally from Fort Worth, TX, his mom brought him out here when he was two. He inched his way over from Blythe, to Beaumont, to Highland. We are thankful that his travels brought him closer to us. Thanks Don for driving that extra mile for us!

Once again the Highland Senior Center and the community of Highland will be tackling Operation Senior Claus. This is an event that provides a Christmas meal to homebound Seniors on Christmas morning. Many seniors have no friends or family, so we want to make sure they are not forgotten.



With the support of the community, we will provide homebound seniors with a nice dinner and a basket of goodies donated by the entire community.



Wont you please help by contributing your time, canned food or a Stater Bros. Gift Card.
