People tend to think about giving around Christmas and it’s year round giving that makes an amazing bike giveaway possible.
This was the 25th year that dozens of donated and refurbished bikes were given away to local school kids.
It was months of work we saw given away in barely a half hour…just in time for Christmas!
It’s a project that Wichita service organization Pando says was an easy choice.
Their student support advocates get to know kids in Derby, Haysville and Wichita school districts.
They communicate with local business the Bicycle X-Change and let them know how many bikes and what sizes they need.
Our generous community takes care of the rest.
It’s up to each school to decide whether the bikes are an attendance incentive, a Christmas gift, or even a way for kids in need to get to school.
If you have a gently used bike you no longer need sitting around your home or garage, the Bicycle X-change collects them year round.
There have likely been lots of excited kids out enjoying our super nice weather on their new bikes!
