HELP - Bicycles need for Sun Prairie kids (FB4K)

We just learned that the FB4K - Madison did not come thru with the 150 bicycles for Sun Prairie.

Unfortunately, the Sunshine Place and Sun Prairie Community Schools had a disappointing donation of bikes from Free Bikes 4 Kidz directly that is not going to meet the anticipated interest and need.

They received donations of a large amount of bikes for children under the age of 5 when most of their requests came from elementary and middle school age students. We also only received about 33 bikes, when we were expecting approximately 150.

Can you help? Do you have any bicycles in working condition you could donate? They are hoping to receive another 20-30 bicycles to meet the demand!

Please contact Sarah from Community Schools or Joanna from The Sunshine Place directly with any ideas or donations.

They are also still looking for volunteers to help with the bike delivery event May 17 (evening).
