ODESSA- The Boys and Girls Clubs in Odessa received a $25,000 anonymous donation yesterday to help purchase a second bus.
A few weeks ago we aired a story about both club locations in Odessa needing to raise funds to purchase buses for the program to use in transporting kids from school to their facilities after school.
David Chancellor, the Executive Director of the clubs, said they had enough funding to purchase one bus, and were hoping to acquire another bus so that each location had access to one.
Currently the clubs only have one large van between both facilities that can only seat up to 10 passengers at a time.
Chancellor said he has already ordered the buses, which can carry up to 53 passengers at a time, and is expecting to receive them in about two weeks.
