Tanager Place relies on Variety for mini-vans


(Cedar Rapids)-- Freedom is movement, and that's exactly how the children who live at Tanager Place in Cedar Rapids feel about their new van supplied by Variety. For the 68 children with physical, emotional and other problems, being able to get around is a huge issue.Whether it's a doctor's appointment, errand or trip to the rec department-- a reliable form of transportation is a priceless addition.

"Yes, this definitely helps. Some of our vans are older and end up in the shop for a while so it's always nice to have another van because they are not always up and running," said Matthew Cook, a driver at Tanager.


 "It's been great. we tried to give all these kids a great quality of life. Every little bit helps and Variety has done more than their fare share and part and we continue to thank them and we appreciate everthing they have done for us," added Nicholas Larson, another driver at Tanager Place.
