I volunteered at the 21st annual Holiday Bike Drive!

Thanks to everyone’s hard work and enthusiasm, 411 kids picked their first bike, received a perfectly fitted helmet, and rode away with a great introduction as to what a bike can bring to their lives.

The stats:

416 = Kids registered

411 = Bikes in the hands of kids

240 = Total volunteers

265 = Total volunteer shifts

1163.5 = Volunteer hours for the week
