D.A.S.T. is a group of volunteer drivers who work in conjunction with Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging to provide transportation to residents of Dauphin Boro and Middle Paxton Township. This service is available to those who are 55 and older, who have no other means of transportation. Transportation to doctor’s appointments, therapy, shopping, and other needs to support a daily lifestyle, are provided. Rides must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance and can be made by calling the Township office (717) 921-8128 between the hours of 8:30-4:30, Monday through Friday. Priority is given to those with doctor and therapy appointments. All riders must be physically able to board and disembark on their own as the van is not equipped with a chair lift. This is a fee-free service; however, donations are greatly appreciated! All operating costs for the van are the responsibility of D.A.S.T. Rue Megonnell is the coordinator for this service and may be contacted with any questions or if you are interested in being a driver at (717) 921-2727 or (717) 433-2192.
Meals on Wheels
Meals are available for qualifying senior citizens of the Township. Arrangements can be made by contacting the area coordinator, Walter Moyer, at (717) 921-8010.
