46 years of service (1974 – 2020)
People Mover was established in 1974 when the Federated Women's Club of Hershey recognized the need for transportation of older citizens. Consequently, the Federated Women's Club of Hershey organized the Senior Citizens Council, incorporated in October, 1974. With the support of the Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging, a van was provided and service began on January 3rd, 1975.
The van was christened "The People Mover".
We are a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization operated by Volunteers of the Senior Citizens Council of Derry Township and governed by an All-Volunteer Board of Directors.
