Sick children in the Historic Triangle will have a busload of holiday presents this year thanks to York County students.

As part of their Stuff the Bus for Wes campaign, York High School students gathered donations from other county schools on Thursday Dec. 8, according to a release from York County School District.

By the time they were done, they had filled an entire bus.

The next stop is Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, where the presents will arrive on Monday, Dec. 12. Throughout the day, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., parents of children who are undergoing treatment at the hospital will be able to go to the Ronald McDonald House and select gifts to share with their children.

In addition to York High, the participating schools were Yorktown Middle, Yorktown Elementary, Dare Elementary and Seaford Elementary.

Stuff the Bus for Wes began at York High in 2014 to support Wes Pak, a Seaford Elementary student. Pak launched a CHKD Toys for Tots drive after he received a neuroblastoma diagnosis.
