In November 2010, after some modifications and repairs, the new bus donated to HELPS -The Chicken Bus- was ready for its first ride. All of HELPS Guatemala’s staff,along with Richard Grinnell – HELPS Vice President – went on a field trip to San LucasSacatepéquez and enjoyed a nice cup of “atol de elote”(drink prepared with cornmeal gruel).  The “Chicken Bus” is now used for local volunteer groups in communities nearby Guatemala City.
