Kids in Providence got a special treat today on Valentine's day.

One of our very own Doreen Scanlon walked them home from school along with her husband Parker.

Doreen escorted them from Fogarty elementary school for the walking school bus Valentine's Day extravaganza.

The children got chocolates and balloons and a special greeting by Mr. Potato head.  

The goal of the walking school bus program is to help students who live within walking distance of school get to class on time and home safely.

Family Service of RI has invited a number of community leaders to lead the Walking School Bus to raise awareness of the program and to help recruit volunteers.  Anyone interested in volunteering should call 401-331-1350 ext. 3457 or visit their website at www.familyserviceri.org
