the project

In response to the global pandemic, the Love & Freedom Bus (Love Bus) provides transportation for basic need items, such as foods, masks, and personal care packages to the more vulnerable and under-served communities. This campaign additionally goes toward hosting block parties that will serve as organized community cleanups, as we promote and practice social distancing physically and virtually. 

The Love & Freedom Bus (Love Bus) has historically been used as an art installation project for local artists to paint LOVE, Joy and Freedom, alongside beautiful bright colors in a fun-loving environment. The bus has since been used in local festivals and parades to promote connectivity through the arts.

why we're doing it

We are doing this to beautify the community block by block, bringing a smile to people's faces and encouraging a sense of community in our neighborhoods. Also, we are doing this to reduce the fear and anxiety people are experiencing during COVID 19 and social distancing, while reducing the spread in our community.
