The build out for the Vail Valley Foundation's second Magic Bus is underway.
One of the Vail Valley Foundation's education efforts, the Magic Bus concept was introduced by the Vail Valley Foundation roughly 10 years ago and was created to increase youth literacy by bringing books to kids who had limited, if any, contact with reading materials. Seats were removed, cushions/bean bags were scattered on the floor, and some 800 books were shelved in what had been a 15-passenger “people mover.” The first Magic Bus currently serves 300 children a day by visiting day care centers located from Vail to Dotsero.
The photos below chronicle to date the building of a second Magic Bus. The expanded fleet, once complete, will double our ability to increase youth literacy in the Vail Valley. A special thanks goes out to Beaver Creek Resort Company for donating the "people mover" you see below that will soon be our second Magic Bus.
As with all VVF education efforts we appreciate all support. Your support of VVF education helps to sustain and enrich the Vail Valley. You can support the Magic Bus HERE.
