The Goddard School® recently donated over 1,300 items to Johns Hopkins Children’s Center through its “Stuff the Bus” donation drive.
The collection for “Stuff the Bus” took place during the month of March at The Goddard School preschool’s 16 Baltimore area locations including Arnold, Bowie, Columbia, Gambrills, Hanover, Millersville and Pasadena. Both Goddard School children and members of the community donated items ranging from books and toys to socks and bibs.
All products were donated to the infant and toddler patients of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center via a school bus, which was packed to the brim. Goddard School educational directors, teachers and children loaded the donation-filled school bus on April 3. “Stuff the Bus” ties into The Goddard School curriculum, which teaches children the importance of helping those in need.
“We’re very impressed by both the idea and the success of The Goddard School ‘Stuff the Bus’ donation drive here in greater Baltimore,” said Joe Schumacher, CEO for Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), franchisor of The Goddard School.
“At The Goddard School, we’re committed to teaching children about compassion, cooperation and the significance of giving back by being a part of their community.”
The Goddard School preschools in the Baltimore area also hosted an open house and accepted donations from the public from March 24 – 28. The schools presented their donation to the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center on April 3.
