Often at this time of year we hear of good deeds being done around the country to help those in need. Here are some great examples.
During a recent holiday season, a group of employees in a local Live Oak, Texas, school district transportation department came together to form “The Yellow Santa” during the holidays and “The Yellow Brigade” year round. According to the Judson Independent School District, they raised over $1,000 and 2000 lbs of food to give to those in need. They also visit nursing homes, plan festivals, and help Habitat for Humanity all year.
“Stuff the Bus” events were held on 2 separate days in Belleville, IL, School District 118. More than 400 toy, clothing, and food items were collected for students ages 3 to 14. This event is part of the Adopt-a-School program which encourages employees to volunteer in helping with collection and distribution.
These Districts and others across the country are making a difference in the communities and schools they serve. If you want to be involved in the spirit of the season, please check with your local school system to see if they have such a project or volunteer to start a local community service.
Merry Christmas from all of us here at Carolina Bus Sales, Inc. ! May your days be safe, happy and bright !!
