The Red Bus is coming Tuesday!

The Red Bus Project is coming to Furman University on Tuesday, March 26.

The project features a red, British double-decker-bus-turned-mobile-thrift-store that travels to college campuses across the Southeast and raises money for orphan care.  The bus will be parked between the James B. Duke Library and John E. Johns Hall from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On the bus, students are invited to donate and buy clothing. The purpose is to spread awareness about the needs of orphans and raise money for orphan care.

The Red Bus Project was founded in January 2012 by Emily and Caleb Chapman, whose father is Christian recording-artist Steven Curtis Chapman, and Chris Wheeler, Show Hope’s Director of Student Initiatives.  The bus toured college campuses in the spring and fall of 2012, and Furman is one of 18 stops on the spring 2013 tour.

The Red Bus Project has visited more than 40 colleges to date and reached more than 126,000 students who have contributed over $35,000 to help provide orphans with families through Show Hope™ adoption grants.

For more information, visit the Red Bus Project website or contact Furman’s Student Activities office at 864-294-2900.
