Foundation buys buses for Massashusetts town

Winthrop receives 2 new and 2 used vehicles

From The Boston Globe: For as long as people can remember, the Winthop (Mass.) school department has leased buses for its daily routes to and from schools, and for athletic events and field trips. But last year the Viking Pride Foundation, a nonprofit that has donated more than $500,000 to Winthrop schools since the town stopped funding athletics in 2004, announced plans to spend $200,000 to buy four buses — two new and two used — so the school district could save additional funds.
