For months now Helping Hands of Georgetown has been preparing. We have been cleaning and repairing and working on a BUS!
Yes I said it, a BUS!
In late 2017 we were gifted a 14 passenger bus. EEEK! It hadn’t been running for 10 years and had quite a few repairs that it needed BUT we had a bus.
We weren’t sure what this would mean for us as a not for profit. Maybe rides for our friends or transportation for our mobile home community?
And then it happened… the idea came to Bob one day for a Mobile Food Pantry and so our bus would come to fill an amazing purpose. So we all got to work. Well mostly Bob and Suzanne… but over the next year the bus would come to need a plethora of repairs and “edits” to be street ready as a mobile pantry.
In July of 2019 she was reborn with a new look (Photo credit to Rudy Ximenez Photography and RSX Studios) and in August 2019 we hosted our first fundraiser with a main purpose of supporting the bus and her mission!
We are hoping to having this baby on the road by October 2019 and we just know that it is going to fill a HUGE need here in Georgetown, We have a plan and places to go and a demographic to serve and we will keep our community apprised of the latest developments as soon as we have more information!
