CCSD bus drivers and other transportation employees donated food, treats, pillows, linens and other basic essentials for the boys in foster care at Goshen Valley Boys Ranch in Waleska. The donations were delivered via school bus on Monday, December 17 by Deputy Superintendent Trey Olson, Transportation Director Jim Georges, Transportation Specialists Joan Dillon and David Ammons, as well as driver Joseph "Sarge" Farrell, who drives the middle/high school route that serves the ranch. Executive Director Stacy Cooper and Educational Coordinator Ally Yeomans were on hand to assist with the delivery. Ms. Cooper said the ranch currently provides a home to 43 boys, and CCSD is their biggest partner. "We are so grateful to the school district for helping get our boys on track to be successful in their education."
