ABC Transportation: Over eight years of supporting students and families

June 27, 2023

DPSCD alumni Charlie Grant, Jr., is not only one of the district’s transportation vendors, he’s also one of the Foundation’s most consistent donors. His recent gift of $118,500 to the Foundation brings his lifetime contributions to over $800k! 

Mr. Grant’s generosity has been used throughout the district to advance a variety of initiatives, including scholarship support, STEAM programs, assisting unhoused students, developing career pathways, and more. We’ll use his most recent donation to maintain The Willie McAllister Jr. Scholarship; support the DPSF Strategic Plan; and purchase books over the next two years to promote reading in the classrooms. 

We are in awe of Mr. Grant and his team at ABC Student Transportation; we are grateful for their continued commitment to DPSCD not only as a vendor and alumni, but as a consistent supporter of our students and their families.
