Glebe Morning School bus

Postby lunchbox » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:35 pm

From Lord Mayor Clover Moore's email post -

Every day, the Glebe Morning School Bus ensures 30 school children from Glebe, Ultimo and Pyrmont get to school on time – and have breakfast before classes begin. These are kids who for many reasons may not make it to school otherwise.
To cover the wage of a driver, year round, they need to raise $20,000 (the City of Sydney already provides the bus and fuel free of charge through our grants program) – Councillor Jess Scully has worked with the Glebe P&C to start a fundraiser and they’re already almost a quarter of the way.

Every bit will make a difference here.

I'd like to think readers of this Board could help the Glebe kids here, possibly with volunteer driver(s) for at least part of the time.....

Perhaps Clover could let off a few less fire-crackers this year and raise the $20K that way ??

I sometimes wonder why I bother staying here.

Sad, sad.

Apparently on NY 2016 cost $6m and had an economic benefit of $133m.
