WPTV told you on Friday how a bus caught fire that Digital Vibez uses to empower youth in diverse and underserved communities.

Last week, a bus fire presented a setback to Digital Vibez's annual toy drive.

"Our bus which transports all these toys and it does other things for our community. It's a mobile classroom, we teach dance, all of that. It caught fire last week," said Rosie Park, the Program Director for Digital Vibes, Inc.

The group said the setback isn't going to damper their Christmas spirit.

"We're looking to serve between 3,500 to 4,000 underserved children in Palm Beach County. So with that, we cannot let this bus set us back. We have to make sure that we are spreading the holiday magic to all of these kids that definitely needed this year," said Park.

Digital Vibes is working with its insurance company to see where they stand with getting the bus back up and running.

In the meantime, they are asking for the communities help.
