Fifty new bikes found their forever homes.
For the last month, Bike Newport’s volunteer elves have been fixing, restoring and polishing dozens of donated children’s bicycles – getting them ready for the annual bike giveaway at Pell Elementary School. On Saturday, smiles abounded as kids of all sizes matched with bikes of all sizes, all shiny and adorned with big red ribbons, and complemented with helmets and bells. Helmets were donated by Newport Rotary Club, whose members were on hand to share in the bike happiness. This wonderful annual happening is made possible by so many people coming together – bike donors, bike mechanics, our schools, kids and parents! Bike Newport welcomes donations of outgrown bicycles for youth year-round – promising tender loving care and new homes for all.
