WOODSTOWN, N.J. — A school bus company headquartered here was honored last week by the Salem County Chamber of Commerce for its philanthropic work, South Jersey Times reports.

B.R. Williams Inc. was recognized as the county’s Distinguished Citizens of the Year during the chamber’s spring banquet for its efforts to assist the victims of national tragedies.

Following the destruction from Hurricane Sandy last fall, B.R. Williams Inc. organized a “Stuff the Bus” campaign, collecting and delivering 17 busloads of dry goods, clothing, perishables and ice. A couple of months later, following the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., the company donated a bus to bring Salem County students and residents to the funeral of a Salem City teacher’s mother, who was one of the victims of the shooting.

B.R. Williams employees have also participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life for the past 10 years, according to South Jersey Times.
