CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Thanks to the passion of a bus driver, The Mother Emanuel Hope Fund has received a generous donation from CARTA's operations partner.
Transdev recently presented a check in the amount of $15,000 to the fundraiser for the Charleston church.
It all began when driver, Cindy Mitchell, started a fundraising effort to help support her community after the tragedy at Emanuel AME Church.
The general manager for Transdev in Charleston heard about Mitchell's hard work and decided to make it a company project. General Manager Ginger Steven's arranged for Transdev to match any contributions made by its employees across the United States and Canada.
The Mother Emanuel Hope Fund provided direct financial support for the funeral and burial expenses of the nine victims killed at the church on June 17.
