PICTURED ABOVE — Chip is retired from Purdue University and has been driving a bus for LUM for over three years. He shared, “I love children and I like to drive — and it keeps me young of mind.” LUM provides a “unique opportunity for working families,” who are trying hard to succeed and now have one less thing to worry about because “they know that their children are in a safe and caring environment at LUM.”
It’s surprisingly much more fulfilling than merely driving a bus around town. Chip learns each student’s name and uses his time with the students to ask them about their day as well as teach them to be kind, caring and respectful of each other. “We (volunteer bus drivers) have an opportunity to have a positive impact on the children and offer a service to working families trying to make it.”
