Watch for Holiday Lights Signs on WRTA Buses!

WRTA is celebrating the spirit of the season with a new initiative this year — the Holiday Lights campaign, which officially began November 30.

“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 ‘Light Up The Valley’ 365 days a year by helping those in need. With the Holiday coming up, we really want to shine the light on these hard-working non-profits. The Holiday Lights campaign is our way of honoring them and encouraging everyone to support their efforts.”

Over the past couple of months, Valley residents were encouraged to nominate organizations to be honored as part of the Holiday Lights campaign. From the nominations, 18 were selected (see separate story for their names and more information).

All through December, signs highlighting these organizations will appear on the sides and back of selected WRTA buses serving Trumbull and Mahoning Counties. Information about the featured organizations will also be on the WRTA website and on social media, with links to the organizations’ websites. Organizations will also be receiving a framed photograph of their bus sign.

Holiday Lights honorees represent a wide variety of entities who serve the greater Mahoning Valley. WRTA encourages all Valley residents to support them at this time of year, when the greatest gift can be one given to help others.
