Holiday Lights Campaign Will Honor Local Non-Profits

The COVID-19 pandemic means the Western Reserve Transit Authority will not be rolling out a Holiday Bus in 2020. But in lieu of that popular feature, WRTA will present the Holiday Lights campaign, co-sponsored by First National Bank and WKBN-TV27.

“All year long, WRTA Gives The Valley a Lift,” said Executive Director Dean Harris. “But there are many other organizations in Trumbull and Mahoning Counties who do the same. For this holiday season, we wanted to turn the spotlight on those organizations that Light Up The Valley 365 days a year with their many efforts to help those in need. The Holiday Lights campaign is our way of honoring them and encouraging everyone to support their efforts.”

Around Thanksgiving, signs highlighting various Valley non-profit organizations will begin appearing on the sides and backs of selected WRTA buses serving Trumbull and Mahoning Counties. They will also be featured on the WRTA website and on social media, with links to the organizations’ Donations pages.

Following our request, WRTA has received many nominations for organizations who would like to be a part of this campaign. Watch for our forthcoming announcement of the organizations that have been chosen.
