Volunteer for the Walking School Bus!

Family Service of Rhode Island provides volunteer-led walk routes to help a number of young students, living within a mile of school, to walk to and from school.  This program promotes school attendance, which is critical to learning.  Would you like to help?  Volunteer and/or donate mittens, gloves, hats etc. to help keep the Walking School Bus kids warm!   Call 401-692-3991 for more information about the "Walking School Bus," or email by clicking here.

See an ABC 6 report  here about the Walking School Bus kids and their need for your support during this cold, snowy winter. Find the Walking School Bus on Facebook here. View a video about the program here.
