School bus packed with toys for 45 Penn Hills families
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.
