SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. — Chestnut Ridge Transportation, a member of The Trans Group family of bus operations, was recently awarded the Good Samaritan Hospital Medal of Honor at the hospital’s 33rd Annual Spring Ball.
Thanks in part to the school transportation company, the event raised nearly $300,000 for the healthcare provider, according to the transportation company.
“Giving back to the community is something we do with pleasure and with gratitude,” said John Corr Jr., president of The Trans Group. “Good Samaritan Hospital is a pillar of health and well-being in Rockland County, and it’s an honor to support such a tremendous community resource. I have always been extremely impressed with Good Samaritan Hospital and all the wonderful people I’ve met there. On behalf of everyone at Chestnut Ridge Transportation, we thank you for this recognition and look forward to future partnerships.”
In addition to Good Samaritan Hospital, Chestnut Ridge Transportation and its team members have supported various nonprofit organizations over the years, including the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the Arc of Rockland, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, according to the company. Chestnut Ridge Transportation has also supported Meals on Wheels, Toys for Tots, Rotary International, Home Aides of Rockland, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, and local schools, libraries, and various youth sports programs.
Chestnut Ridge Transportation has provided preschool transportation for special-needs students in Rockland County, and currently provides general-education and special-needs transportation for the East Ramapo Central School District, Suffern Central School District, and Pearl River School District.
The Trans Group, which operates 10 companies and more than 1,300 vehicles, employs over 2,000 people and provides transportation to hundreds of thousands of passengers annually in lower New York state and Long Island.
