Mason City, IA – Our latest Volunteer Connection piece profiles the Walking School Bus program. It’s run by the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health, and partners with Mason City schools to make sure kids get their exercise, and get to school safely. The routes are made up of kids who get picked up at their homes by adult volunteers, and are usually one mile or less from school. But the program needs help from those volunteers in order to run. The program takes place in the spring and the fall, and you can volunteer one to five days a week. For more information, contact the Department of Public Health at www.cghealth.com or call (641) 421-9312.
