Ross the valley are working together to remodel school buses into homes for families that lost everything in the almeda fire.

It's a new project called 'the bus project' and it's made possible through multiple community partners working together.

The students involved are getting class credit and a stipend for working with a goal of completing the transformation of both buses by the end of the school year.
