We have seen many underprivileged children receive bikes, thanks to a caring organization, Bikes For Kids. This time around it was Citizen’s Bank that partnered with them. The New London Citizen’s Bank branch hosted the event on December 17. What perfect timing for the holiday season!
Chuck Graeb, founder, Bikes For Kids, presented 5 children with bikes. Chuck asked the children what the reason was behind giving them these bikes. “We are giving you these bikes because we love you and care for you,” Chuck said.
Although it was not a very big turnout due to the threatening winter weather, five kids rode away with huge smiles on their faces.
