The Walking School Bus Initiative is in need of volunteers. Their mission: The PCI Walking School Bus recruits & trains volunteers to walk kids to school—promoting on time & safe arrival, daily exercise, and adults mentorship. Created to address chronic absenteeism, our dedicated volunteers ensure that each child, living within a mile of school and needing to walk, arrives on time, even when a family member is unable to walk with him or her. The program has improved the attendance of students who were chronically absent to near perfect attendance and currently serves the Fogarty, Bailey, Young Woods, Lima, Kizarian, and D'Abate elementary schools in Providence, Rhode Island.
ALSO NEEDED: Gently used coats and shoes/boots for children
