Books for buses project

By: Bonnie Krueger


Whitfield School senior Andrew Bergantz wanted to give voluntary transfer students from Woerther Elementary something to do while on the long bus ride to and from school. So, Bergantz wrote a grant for a “books for buses” project through Thrivent Foundation. He considered the idea an extension of his 2014 Eagle Scout project.

Thrivent awarded money for materials and Bergantz got busy, collecting about 1,000 books, organizing them by grade-level and placing them in color-coded tote bags for voluntary transfer students. Weekly, he swaps out the books to give students a fresh new set of books to read for the week.
