Dial-A-Bus of Benton CountyDisability Service in Corvallis, Oregon
In 2017, Dial-A-Bus provided a grand total of 68,554 trips to 1,314 clients, totaling well more than a half-million miles. Of that, our wonderful volunteers drove 142,124 miles!
But, did you know that Dial-A-Bus also does more than give people rides? We also did the following in 2017:
- Served eight families Thanksgiving Dinner, in addition to Community Outreach Inc. and Jackson Street Youth Shelter....
- Provided Christmas presents to nearly a dozen families in need. Many of these families are either homeless, displaced, or in foster care.
- Celebrated birthdays with our developmentally disabled adult clients, getting their peers and friends to celebrate with us.
- Honored our veterans in the Albany Veterans Day Parade.
And much, much more!

A Legend Retires
Jim Martin, longtime Dial-A-Bus volunteer, retired last week to move back closer to family in Arkansas. Jim has been a fixture around Dial-A-Bus for over a decade. Although infinitely humble and unassuming, Jim is a towering giant in our community. His record of service is an edifice he built with his own hands, from which the rest of us might reach higher than we otherwise could.
