Thankful Thursday! We were able to work with High Performance Signs & Graphics to brand our shuttles and we are so happy with the result. Our shuttle picks guests up each evening at 7:15pm from C.O.P.E.S Peer Center at 140 SW 11th in Hermiston and drops off each morning at the same location at 7am. We also use our shuttles to transport members to appointments, grocery shopping, and other necessary tasks during daytime navigation center hours. ¡Jueves agradecido! Pudimos trabajar con High Performance Signs & Graphics para marcar nuestros transbordadores y estamos muy contentos con el resultado. Nuestro servicio de transporte recoge a los huéspedes cada noche a las 7:15pm en C.O.P.E.S Peer Center en 140 SW 11th en Hermiston y los deja cada mañana en el mismo lugar a las 7am. También utilizamos nuestros servicios de transporte para transportar a los miembros a citas, compras de comestibles y otras tareas necesarias durante el horario del centro de navegación. #thankful #support #homeless #community #transportation #supportlocal #lovelocal
