First Student Location Raises Hundreds of Dollars for Kansas Food Bank

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.
