Donations and Contributions for Events

Ride Trains for Fun of South Carolina is depended on public contributions/donations to make the choo-choo train available to children in South Carolina as well as neighboring states. As a non- profit, we no longer use the words " train fees." However, we do make suggestions as to what it will cost us to put this little train at any event so that children will have an opportunity to participate in our different train activities. We are the only non-profit organization that operates a choo-choo train for children in South Carolina.

We are committed to giving back to the communities in South Carolina. We collect canned goods for needy families from children who ride on the train. We give scholarships to children in church preschool programs as well as make the train available to children living at South Carolina Children's Homes. We are working with Richland County School Resource Officers to improve relationships between law enforcement and kindergartners and young children. Ride Trains for Fun of South Carolina bought and delivered 120 cases of bottled waters to Richland and Lexington Counties during the flood.
