WALL, N.J. — Student Transportation Inc. (STI) has launched a donation drive to help families in need for the holidays.
The company and its operating subsidiaries, Student Transportation of America and Student Transportation of Canada, are collecting nonperishable food items, clothing and household items at their more than 150 locations across North America.
STI's holiday donation drive, dubbed "Driving Our Communities," began Nov. 1 and will continue through the holiday season. The company is encouraging employees, school districts and the public to donate food and other items for local families in need.
Food items needed include canned goods, boxed or bagged foods, soups, cereals and other foods that can be stored at room temperature. Other items requested include children's jackets, mittens or gloves, hats, socks and basic household supplies.
"STI is committed not only to the 700,000 children that we transport safely to and from school each day, but to all members of the communities we serve, including those less fortunate," said Patrick Vaughan, STI's chief operating officer. "Our service to local communities goes beyond school buses; our holiday donation drive presents the perfect opportunity for STI to give back and bring out the best in all of us."
