We are so grateful for The Joy Bus and encourage others to support this crucial mission.”
“We are humbled by the generous support that The Joy Bus receives from the community,” said Jennifer Caraway, founder of The Joy Bus. “We could not deliver on our mission without the support of our amazing partners and volunteers.
