EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- An Evansville organization founded to help care for children whose parents have been affected by natural disasters has ceased operations.
Now its trademark bus will be transformed into a new use.
C.J.'s Bus was named for 2-year-old C.J. Martin. The boy was one of two dozen people killed when a tornado swept through an Evansville mobile home park on Nov. 6, 2005.
The organization has spent the last six years traveling to storm-ravaged areas to help parents care for their children. But the Evansville Courier & Press reports it transferred its converted school bus and other assets to the St. Mary's Medical Center Foundation in October.
St. Mary's plans to convert the bus into a mobile command post for an emergency field hospital.
