The First Student team in Lawrence, Kan., recently showed their commitment to the community they serve extends beyond the school day. Employees held a fundraiser to benefit an area food bank. Just Food plays a key role in fighting hunger by supplying families in need in Douglas County with nutritious food. The location organized a raffle with items donated from local businesses. Employees collected gift cards and other prizes for the fundraiser. The location sold more than $500.00 worth of raffle tickets.
“We were pleased to provide much-needed food items to help families in our community,” said Wayne Zachary, First Student Location Manager. “Proper nourishment and safe transportation go hand-in-hand in helping ensure that a child has a successful day at school.”
100 percent of the proceeds from the raffle benefited the food bank.
