Westerville TEA Party May Meeting - Buying A Bus!

Buy A Bus

The Westerville Area Resource Ministry is looking to expand its ministry capabilities and is working to buy a school bus. A local area expert has reached out to a bus company and has arranged for W.A.R.M. to purchase a well maintained bus for just $1,000. This is a great deal for them.

When we found out about this opportunity, we decided to help.

The Westerville TEA Party will host Deb Wallace, the Operations Manager for W.A.R.M., at our next meeting and we will collect a donation in order to help them purchase this bus. We hope to make a significant contribution towards this purchase!

If you cannot make it to the meeting but would like to donate, you can mail your donation to Jim Burgess at 4930 Honeysuckle Blvd., Columbus, OH 43230. Please make the check payable to "WARM." Write "School Bus Project" on the memo line. Please do not redirect any of your normal giving to this effort.


School Board Update...

Also for this meeting, we have invited Dr. Carol French, Westerville City School Board Member to give an update this evening as well. We will hear from Carol about what is happening at the schools and how she is working to make a difference.

    How awesome was that? We raised enough money to buy the bus - and then some! What a great group, thank you!

    Where can you buy a school bus for that cheap? I'd love to buy one?

      Schools have a life time mileage rating on their buses. They go for, say, 200,000 miles (I don't know what the actual is). That doesn't mean they are no longer capable of running, it means the school is at a point where cost to maintain is more than just buying a new one - so to speak. These used buses still have a useful life. WARM is taking advantage of getting one with useful life left into it with a commitment that is will be a lot of useful life for the money. Make sense?
