Executive Director Toby Winn with newest addition to the Kids Zone team!

The Kids Zone would like to formally welcome our newest addition to the team, a 1987 GMC school bus!  This 14-passenger retired school bus was driven up from the Coquille School District in November, and they generously released this vehicle to NFK for only $100!  Of course, there will be costs associated with gas, insurance (which we have now secured), and maintenance needed over time, but we are thankful for this resource.

NFK Board Member and Kids Zone mom, Kaileen Wade, helped to secure this bus, and we thank her for making it a reality.  This express bus will open new doors for our programs and will be used for learning-based and recreational field trips around Lincoln County, for transporting children to our site in Depoe Bay after school and in the summer months, and also for taking our team to staff trainings.  We are grateful to have this safe, reliable express bus–something we have always dreamed of.

So if you see us rolling down the road, please give us a friendly honk or wave of the hand, and say, “Go Kids Zone!”
