First Student Drivers Donate School Supplies

Location #20703 in Council Bluffs, Iowa“Over the summer, I attended the Summer Summit meeting,” said #20703 Location Manager John Jacob of Location  . “During the conference, I participated in a team building activity where managers packed backpacks with school supplies. I could see how the activity really brought the group together, so I decided to replicate the activity for my location.”

During the activity, team members assembled 22 boxes of school supplies. The boxes were later donated to Bloomer Elementary School, a school in the Council Bluffs Community School District in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The location currently transports more than 3,300 students for the district.

Although this was the first time the location participated in a community engagement project, it certainly won’t be the last. “All my employees really enjoyed the project,” said John. “It brought drivers, dispatchers, and office staff together and created strong, lasting bonds between teams.”
