Krise Transportation during the last month collected Christmas gifts to help make the holiday a little merrier for 45 families in the Penn Hills School District.

The inaugural drive was called “Pack a Bus,” because enough toys were collected to fill a school bus. The company, owned by Tim Krise, provides transportation services to the district.

The company was able to collect enough toys to provide several gifts to each child in the selected families. Krise also gave money so additional toys could be purchased and the company owner donated turkeys for the families to serve during the holidays.

Other donors included: company drivers and staff; teachers and other school district workers; the Fireman's Club in Verona; Chief Devin Cummings and crew at Penn Hills Volunteer Fire Department 221; Trinity Tower United Methodist Church and numerous other members of the community.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
