OCCK Transportation is joining in the season of giving.
OCCK Transportation’s 2019 Holiday Give & Go charitable campaign — a community fundraiser — is scheduled for Thursday.
Each year, all monetary fares received by OCCK general public transportation and on the CityGo buses during the campaign are donated to a local charity. This year, all funds raised will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Salina, OCCK noted in a news release.
Non-riders are encouraged to make donations as well. Each CityGo bus has a fare box inside the bus and drivers will accept donations. Additional donations can be brought to the OCCK Transportation building at 340 North Santa Fe Avenue.
“We are continually looking for ways to give back to the community,” said Michelle Griffin, transportation director for OCCK. “The 2019 Holiday Give & Go program allows us a great way of doing just that. We are also excited for the opportunity to support Big Brothers Big Sisters and all of the work they are doing in Salina.”
Information about Big Brothers Big Sisters and all of their programs can be found on social media or on their website at www.bbbssalina.org.
