Getting ready for back to school is tough on the finances for some local families. GVTC employees once again did their part to help students in need get the supplies they need to start the new school year strong.
Our annual Pack the Bus collection to benefit Communities in Schools South Central Texas scored high marks. Hundreds of items were collected and donated to CIS.
“We were concerned at first that we weren’t getting any participation, but everyone held out & then shocked us, said. “The van that came to pick up our collection was filled completely,” Darlyn Brown, GVTC Foundation board of director and Pack the Bus volunteer, said.
A contest took place among company departments to generate some competition. Congratulations to the NOC/Service Center/Support/Schedulers who came in first with 333 items and 1265 points total. They’ll be treated to a Sweets Party hosted by The GVTC Foundation.
