Project Bikes

The goal of this project is to collect new and gently used bikes to be distributed to students.

 

Project Coordinators:  Erin Arva, 717-877-8893, earva@comcast.net

 

Thankfully spring is not too far away! We currently have a nice selection of all sizes of bikes that are ready to be given to MASD kids. Parents: If your child is in need of a bike, please contact his/her guidance counselor to make a request through Project Bikes. Then the kids will be ready to get outside and enjoy the sport of biking when the warmer weather arrives!

 

Operation Wildcat’s Project Bikes restores and repairs used bikes for distribution to students in need.  These bikes provide transportation and exercise for students who could not otherwise afford to purchase a bike.  A healthy, active lifestyle is important for all students because it promotes academic achievement.  The bikes are stored in a storage facility until needed.

 

 

In addition, we would like to recognize St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church's Trail Life USA Troop 101 for filling the important role of fixing donated bikes, as needed, to get them ready to be given to MASD children. The leaders and troop members are doing a super job ensuring our bikes are road ready and safe.

 

 

MASD Parents: If your child is in need of a bike, please contact his/her guidance counselor to make a request through Project Bikes. We currently have a good selection of nice bikes, and spring is the perfect time for kids to get outside and enjoy the sport of biking. Plus, then they will have a bike to enjoy over the summer!
