From staff reports:
King County Councilman Pete von Reichbauer recently helped arrange the donation of a retired King County van to Communities In Schools of Federal Way (CIS).
The van will be used to transport students in the Federal Way Public Schools who are served by CIS, and will be used to take students on field trips and other CIS events. In the past, field trips have included the Weyerhaeuser Company, DeVry University, and the Pacific Science Center. Events include their Mentor/Mentee Summer Service Day and Picnic and their end of the year celebration.
With this van, CIS hopes to take students on at least three field trips per month and around five special events per year.
Interested organizations can contact Pete von Reichbauer for more information on applying for a vehicle at (206) 296-1007.
