Before the start of the new school year, BNSF employees from the Spokane/Hauser Terminal spent an afternoon filling backpacks with school supplies for children in need. Over the course of an afternoon, 20 BNSF employees filled 26 backpacks. Each backpack was filled with traditional school supplies such as notebooks, binders, highlighters and pencils, but volunteers also packed a few fun items for students, like a BNSF stress football and a flashlight.
This isn’t the first time the Spokane/Hauser Terminal has volunteered with the Boys & Girls Club of Spokane. Earlier this year, BNSF employees helped build bikes for local children, and in November the Spokane/Hauser Terminal will be soliciting donations for snow boots.
