This month I'm asking you to consider helping a bus! That's right: a bus.
Buses are a critical component in UrbanPromise's ability to serve hundreds of youth each day!
Our AfterSchool Programs require buses to pick up our youth from neighborhood schools, drive them to our programs, and then bring every child home each evening.
Our schools use buses for field trips and for weekly trips to our community Kroc Center for physical education classes.
We use them to take our teens on college visits throughout the year.
Our buses take kids places they might otherwise never go: swimming, camping, museums, the beach...Buses are essential to UrbanPromise’s ability to provide developmental and experiential opportunities for Camden youth.
UrbanPromise currently owns a fleet of 8 retired school buses to accommodate the 700 youth who participate in our programs. These vehicles are on the road 6 days a week. They need tune-ups, gas, new tires, brake pads, fluid changes, and basic upgrades.
Will you help me keep all 8 of our buses on the road this year?
Thank you in advance for considering this unusual request. Thanks for passionately caring about the safety of our children and helping to grow their life experiences.
