The care Durham School Services has for the students we serve in the USA extends beyond the school bus door. Our drivers around the country get involved with "their" kids and their communities, organizing school sponsorships, holding fundraisers and toy drives, raising money for scholarships, donating field-trip service, and more.
In 1996 Durham School Services' adopted Special Olympics as its number one charitable cause.
As an expert provider of special needs transportation for more than 50 years, we have seen first-hand the positive impact Special Olympics makes on children with special needs. We care for more than 28,000 special needs children in California alone, and are proud to be the official Transportation Sponsor for the Special Olympics Summer Games in California and Texas, as well as a Gold Medal Sponsor in California, Texas and Washington. We are the only school bus contractor to support Special Olympics so extensively-through corporate donations, employee volunteering efforts, and in-kind contributions.
We wanted to support a cause that has a proved track record of helping "our kids." By making Special Olympics our number one community project, our employees can become even more involved in the community they serve.
