“We think about kids needing pencils and needing a meal, but we forget how do the kids get to school,” said Richard Varner, Director of Transportation for the William S. Hart Union School District.

Through a series of fundraising activities, MV Transportation employees raised enough money to purchase 80 bus passes to local students in need.

“I think its wonderful that drivers have come together to help our students,” said Varner. “We have hundreds of designated homeless in the district and it’s great that we can help them.”

The managers were dunked in water and got pies thrown in their faces to help raise money, said MV Transportation General Manager Jim Schultzman,

“We also did hot dog sales, ice cream sales and open donations. To tell you the truth, the open donations with the employees yielded the most money. One employee donated more than $100. These guys really stepped up to the plate,” Schultzman said.

Transportation funding in the district was cut in the 2011-2012 school year, Varner said.

“We wanted to help and do something for the Hart District kids,” said Joseph Norwood, DOT instructor and driver. “I still go on my route when I’m not training. I love to build the relationships with the kids and make sure they get home safely.”

Roughly 4,000 hart district students use city transportation to get to and from school daily, and about 400 students in the district are considered homeless, he said.

“I’m amazed at their generosity,” said Rob Challinor, Hart District Superintendent. “ Getting a student to school is critical to their success, they need to be in class each and every day.”

Hart District students return to school on Thursday, August 15 for the start of the new school year.
