The American Red Cross took part in the annual Partners in Education Program of the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce Careers on Wheels Program.

Careers on Wheels is a unique and exciting program for third or fifth graders. Cars, trucks, tractors, emergency vehicles and people representing a variety of careers visit the school, giving students an opportunity to examine, explore and learn about a variety of careers “on wheels.”

Volunteer driver, Bob DeGroot visited three elementary schools in the area and shared with the students his role as a volunteer driver, how the transportation program helps people in the community and students were allowed to go on the bus.
