"This is about protecting children," Angie King, who owns Loves Childcare Ministries, said. "And we need to come together as a community and do this together." King has decided to start offering free rides to school for all children in Alamance County. "I posted a status on Facebook asking for volunteers to help and the response has just been overwhelming. I've had so many people that want to step up and help," She explained. King said about 30 people offered to volunteer in a little over 24 hours. Others offered to donate money for gas. "Just seeing this response has restored my faith in our community," She said. King is hoping to start the free rides by the end of the week. All volunteers will have to get background checks before driving any kids. "We're doing this so that this never happens to another child," King said. "That's what my purpose is" Copyright 2016 WFMY CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST JOIN THE CONVERSATION To find out more about Facebook commenting please read the Conversation Guidelines and FAQs Leave a Comment TRENDING VIDEOS Giraffe Facts Women Claim The Man They Met Online Left Them With Empty Wallets A stranger emailed me a warning about blood clots.
