Union Career Connect Seeking Donations of Bikes & Bike Helmets

Union Career Connect Seeking Donations of Bikes & Bike Helmets

Manufacturing and Automotive students through Union’s Career Connect program and the City of Tulsa Learning With a Wrench program team up every year for Bikes for Kids, providing refurbished bicycles to local families in need. The community is invited to donate children and youth bikes with wheel sizes up to 24” (in any condition) to help make this project a success. We know that safety is extremely important, therefore we are also asking for new helmets to ensure that these kids are being protected while riding their newly refurbished bikes.

The Bikes for Kids project is also a collaboration of business and educational partners including:  AAON, City Cycles, City of Tulsa Asset Management Department, City of Tulsa Fleet, Tulsa Community College, Mobile Mini and Union Schools Education Foundation.

Technicians and Manufacturing professionals will assist the program students in using the skills they’ve acquired from class to refurbish the bikes. Future Educators, Early Childhood Development, and Art Design students will decorate the bikes with bows and personalized cards. Union Transportation will deliver completed bicycles to Union Elementary sites on December 14.  Last year, more than 110 bikes were collected and a majority of them were restored and given to Union School District children.

Bikes and new helmets may be dropped off at the Union Collegiate Academy, 6636 S. Mingo Road, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays while school is open now through November 16. Questions may be directed to the Union Career Connect Office at 918-357-6305 or by emailing Mindy Willman at [email protected].
