New Look for Helping Hands

Helping Hands in Orillia is sporting a new look.

The first of its newly designed mobility vans hit the streets on Tuesday.

Helping Hands Board Chair Bob Bowles says the newly wrapped vehicles will be a lot more visible that the current vans, which only have small lettering on the door.

Bowles says the new colour scheme has the vans decorated with a large blue wave on the side of the vehicle with the Helping Hands logo along with a list of services Helping Hands provides on the windows of the vans.

He says this part of their effort to re brand the organization.

Bowles says all of their vehicles will now look the same so that will make it easier for their clients to know when the Helping Hands vehicle arrives to pick them up.

He says in the past many clients, who had poor vision had a difficult time reading the small print on the side of the door.

Helping Hands serves seniors residing in Ramara, Severn and Oro-Medonte as well as Orillia, with 11 transportation vehicles operated by volunteers and employees.
