An update from Lisa Terfehr, our Community Outreach Director:
This was a busy week for the Wheels for Kids delivery team! Dick Schafer and I delivered 5 bikes/helmets to the Tucson Boys & Girls Club on Tuesday; Wednesday, Tom and I delivered 7 bikes/helmets to Kristi’s Kids’ Season of Hope (putting us over the 1,800 mark for total bike deliveries!) and on Thursday, 18 bikes were delivered to Desert Survivors, Perimeter Bicycling and Interfaith Community Services. Kristi was happy to welcome us back again and I was interviewed by her on the 4:00 p.m. news. Our contacts at each organization expressed their gratitude and ensured us that the bikes would bring hours of happiness to their lucky recipients! Thank you for your continued support and sharing your ‘gifts’ (mechanical, time, energy) to Wheels for Kids. UPDATE: As of 1/23/17, WFK has delivered over 1,900 bikes to those in need.
