Get On The Bus brings children and their caregivers from throughout the state of California to visit their mothers & fathers in prison.
At St Michael's, we are making "Keep in Touch" kits for letter writing and breakfast bags. We need volunteers to purchase tote bags and paper bags, a few small items for the travel bags and several volunteers to help package it up before the 10:30 service. We will reimburse you for purchases.
An annual event, Get On The Bus offers free transportation for the children and their caregivers to the prison. Each child is provided a travel bag, a photo with his or her parent, and meals for the day (breakfast, snacks, lunch at the prison, and dinner). On the trip home, a teddy bear with a letter from their parent and post-event counseling.
Get On The Bus is a program of The Center for Restorative Justice Works, a non profit organization that unites children, families and communities separated by crime and the criminal justice system. Read more here: http://www.getonthebus.us/
