'A Chance To Give Someone A Little Hope': Union Students Help Refurbish Bikes For Children In Need

Union Public Schools’ Bikes for Kids program is providing a hands-on chance for some of its students to use their classroom lessons while helping their community.

After taking 2020 off due to COVID-19, Union Public Schools’ automotive and manufacturing students are once again fixing up gently used donated bicycles that will go to elementary students in need.

“In auto, they’re learning how to change big tires, so we figured the little tires would be nothing,” Career Connect Adviser LaQuisha Jackson said. “For the manufacturing side, it’s putting things together, organizing quality control and putting the safety aspect into play.”

Donations of new and gently used youth-sized bicycles and new helmets may be dropped off at the Union Collegiate Academy at 6636 S. Mingo Road through Friday while school is in session.
