As we get into bike season, the Green N Yellow Group are getting closer to their annual Kids Bike BBQ. The event is in year and the fundraising initiative aims to get as many bikes as they can to give away to kids who are in need of them most. An official with the Green N Yellow Group says fundraising has been going great so far and they can’t wait to give the bikes away.
“The community’s been helping out quite a bit. We have lots of businesses that have stepped up and that have helped. We have our members or volunteers that have gone around and gone around to different businesses and just reached out. And we have other just community member seven just sending us e-transfers, people donating things that we need. It means so much to us that we can just be a part of helping out children that are in need. And just when you see children that don’t have a bicycle or that have never had a new bicycle and you see their faces when they get it, that it’s them that get picked. It’s awesome.”
The group hopes to collect at least 50 bikes this year. The event will take place on May 13th.
