Pan Mass Challenge:
The Pan Mass Challenge is an annual bike race that takes place across the entire state, ending in Provincetown, MA. Every year, more than 5,000 cyclists and hundreds of volunteers come out from 36 states and 8 countries to raise money for cancer research. Van Pool drivers and staff have been volunteering vans and time to the nationally renowned event for over 25 years. Both Van Pool and the PMC share similar philosophies in regards to team work and a sincere commitment to achieving positive results. To learn more about the PMC and how you can become a volunteer, please visit www.pmc.org. We hope to see you out there!

Special Olympics:
Many of the students we transport everyday are given the opportunity to participate in Special Olympics events across the state each year. The Special Olympics of Massachusetts (SOMA) has a core belief that, “through successful experiences in sports, SOMA athletes gain confidence and build positive self-images, which go with them into their homes, classrooms, jobs and communities”.  Van Pool has a long tradition of assisting this belief by volunteering vans and drivers to get students to and from local Special Olympics events.

Red Cross:
In March 2009, Van Pool donated one of its retired vehicles to the Red Cross Pioneer Valley chapter. The vehicle was refurbished and given a new paint job, donated by the Pease Family and 1812 Paint and body shop. The bus became one of the organization’s disaster response vehicles, and is now used to transport volunteers and disaster relief supplies to those in Hampden,  and Hampshire counties. To learn how you can donate to the Red Cross or become a volunteer in your community, please visit www.redcross.org

Mass Dash Relay:
For the first time in 2012, Van Pool had the opportunity to support a group of students from Minnechaug High School who participated in the 2012 Mass Dash Relay! Van Pool drivers and volunteers came out to cheer on the "Tidy Twelve" as they embarked on a 2-day, 200 mile trek from Mt Greylock to Boston Harbor. All proceeds from the relay are donated to Dana Farber Institute for Cancer Research. For more information, please visit.
