In the past years, The T has donated 2 bus passes per back pack to the Labre Society to pass out to the homeless. This year, we qualify for only 500 bus passes and will have to purchase additional passes at $1.75 each. This expense meant dropping a few items we have included in the past such as hand towels, band aids and body lotion.
