The Hope Bus

Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community,

Yankee Trails and The Bus Stop Club have partnered to brighten your day while also collecting donated non-perishable items for local schools and food pantries.

On Wednesday, May 20th. Be on the lookout for the #YTHopeBus“Lightning McQueen” and “Waldo” as they take to the roads throughout the City of Rensselaer, between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00p.m.

The bus will be collecting non-perishable items which will benefit the Rensselaer School District’s Community. If you are able to do so, please leave donated items, in a bag with handles, near your mailbox or at the end of your driveway, so the volunteers can easily collect the items.
