PLAINFIELD, Ill. — Employees for a local school bus company helped those in need stay warm this winter by hosting a “Stuff-A-Bus” clothing drive.

In a joint effort, team members of Septran created school bus-shaped donation boxes and dropped them off at every school in the community, as well as their school district office and local library, according to a news release from National Express, Septran’s parent company. The team received an overwhelming response, collecting more than 29 boxes and 27 bags full of new or gently used winter clothing.

“We greatly appreciate all that Septran has done. This has been a huge success,” said Dr. Lane Abrell, superintendent of Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202. “Many families will benefit from all of these items, and we thank them immensely.”

“As a core value, we are committed to helping our community and are proud to support those in need,” said Deveon Stiff, general manager of Septran. “We are very appreciative of everyone who participated and donated items of clothing. It’s important to give back, especially during the holiday season.”
