Community Transit recently donated 10 vehicles to 12 local community organizations. The vehicles had reached the end of their service life at the agency.
Since the Van GO program began in 2000, Community Transit has awarded 136 vehicles to a variety of 501c3 non-profit organizations around Snohomish County. This year, the agency awarded eight seven-passenger vans and two 16-passenger mini-buses.
This year’s Van GO recipients: Cocoon House (Everett), Glacier Peak Institute and North Counties Family Services (Darrington), Granite Falls Community Coalition and Granite Falls Food Bank (Granite Falls), Hand Up Project (Edmonds), Josephine Sunset Home (Stanwood), Korean Community Service Center (Edmonds), Monroe Gospel Women’s Mission (Monroe), Northwest’s Child (Seattle), Pioneer Human Services (Marysville), and Shepherd’s Garden Senior Housing (Lynnwood).
By state law, other Community Transit surplus vehicles are sold at public auction to help recoup the public investment. More information about the Van GO program is at www.communitytransit.org/VanGo.
