Parkview Transit, a subsidiary of Student Transportation of Canada and a member of the Student Transportation of America family of companies, organizes bus trips to St. Jacob’s Market in Orillia, Canada, for those in the region looking for an excursion.
Parkview donates buses through Operations Manager, Tony Gottwald, while drivers donate their time for these events. Parkview charges a nominal fee for the trip, with all the money being donated to local charities. Since 2014, Parkview, through this program, has donated $10,940 to the Sharing Place Food Bank in Orillia.
“This support is incredible and has allowed us to invest in healthy food and infrastructure to improve the lives of our members,” said Chris Peacock, the executive director of the Sharing Place. He thanked JoAnne Lawlor with Parkview, who has helped organize the trips and promoted them throughout the community. “The entire team at Parkview can be very proud of the significant impact you have made in the lives of our members,” said Peacock.
This week, the Parkview team made a donation of $1,160, which are the proceeds from the latest trip, to the Sharing Place.
