Please help Fleetwood Community Bus meet expenses during COVID-19 shutdown.
Fleetwood Community Bus, Inc. is a very small 501c3 non-profit located in Fleetwood, PA. The bus board, drivers, and helpers are all volunteers. Fleetwood Community Bus, Inc. is dedicated to helping the local community in many ways. Some of their functions include:
-Transporting local senior citizens to the grocery store
-Providing scheduled mystery trips for local seniors
-Christmas caroling to local shut-ins
-Transporting mission teams to the airport
-Loaning the bus to other small groups for trips/events
-Transporting local youth to camp
-Shuttle services at local festivals
In 2019, the Fleetwood Community Bus, Inc. board made the decision to upgrade the bus. Though the majority of the cost of the bus was raised, a loan was needed to cover the gap between the cost of the bus and the amount raised. Normally, between the activities listed above and the generous donations from local non-profits and businesses, the bus is able to cover its expenses. However, since the mandatory shut down caused by COVID-19, the bus has not been able to be used for any functions. In addition, area groups that support us have needed to cut their budgets and/or cancel upcoming trips. An upcoming fundraiser for the Fleetwood Community Bus, Inc. has also been postponed indefinitely. The sad reality is that it may be awhile until groups can go to dinner theaters and shows. The bus will not be able to operate again until we are assured that we can keep our volunteers and riders as healthy as possible. Thus, our income stream may be affected for quite some time.
We kindly ask that you join us in keeping the Fleetwood Community Bus, Inc. as an asset to our community. Your gift will help us stay current with our loan payments as well as pay for things such as insurance and bus maintenance. We greatly thank you!
