Posted on August 17, 2016

 

 

Each year Premier Broadcasting - WXEF 97.9 and KJ Country 102.3 sponsors a “Pack the Bus” Program.  This year it was held on Friday, July 22 at the Effingham Wal-Mart.

 

The Ramblin’ Rose Bus was parked in the Effingham Wal-Mart lot for the day. Shoppers purchased book bags, notebooks, paper, folders, glue, rulers, scissors, pens, pencils, and other school supplies and brought them to the bus.  Some people chose to make a monetary donation.  $2,200.25 was collected to purchase additional supplies. The Catholic Charities Ramblin’ Rose Bus travels to 14 locations in the 7 counties served from the Effingham Catholic Charities Office providing students with school supplies and clothing to start the new school year.  The bus program served 1263 children this summer.

 

Catholic Charities wishes to thank Premier Broadcasting, Wal-Mart and all who donated so generously to assist in enabling Catholic Charities to offer this service to the children in our communities.
