GET buses dedicated to raising awareness about human trafficking


Over a dozen GET buses got public service makeovers.

Canyon Hills Women’s Ministry, partnered with Golden Empire Transit (GET) and unveiled 14 buses wrapped in banners sharing the National Human Trafficking hotline number on Thursday.

The move is part of their month-long campaign to increase awareness about human trafficking in our city.

This campaign leads up to the ministry’s drive-by donation fundraiser scheduled Friday, April 13.

Canyon Hills Women’s Ministry, through Project Rescue, is holding its 7th Annual Drive-by-Donation Day event in which we raise funds and awareness to help fight human trafficking:

  1. Hodel’s Restaurant:  at the intersection of Knudsen and Olive Drive; and
  2. Sully’s Chevron: on Coffee Drive at the intersection of  Stockdale and Gosford
  3. Luigi’s Restaurant:  19th Street
  4. Salty’s BBQ:  White Lane 
  5. Town Center Shopping Center (Downtown Starbucks)

The funds raised in the 2018 Campaign will be allocated as follows:

  1. The Kern Coalition Against Human Trafficking KCAHT – a local organization comprised of government and non-government entities and local citizens working to have a comprehensive approach to anti-human trafficking efforts in Kern County. 
  2. The A21 Campaign – An organization, with offices in Los Angeles that works within California, the U.S. and internationally to fight human trafficking. 
  3. A Public Awareness Campaign to continue raising awareness and further broadcast the national human trafficking hotline number to encourage reporting and provide opportunity for rescue and help to victims.
