Unique Thrift Store On Wheels Stops By WKU

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Students at Western Kentucky University had a unique shopping experience on Wednesday.

The Red Bus Project is a thrift store on wheels that makes stops at college campuses nationwide. It uses a double decker bus to sell clothes, shoes and more. All sales are donated to Show Hope, a non-profit that supports orphan care.

The organization says children becoming orphans continues to be a growing issue.

"Every 18 seconds another child becomes an orphan somewhere in the world. Now there are over 140 million orphans but college students can make a huge difference by speaking up for those kiddos that can't speak for themselves," says Chris Wheeler from Show Hope.

Wednesday was the last stop on the Red Bus Project Spring Tour. For more information on the project click the link below.
