Springfield students receive new bicycles, scooters
Springfield Students receive bicycles, scooters in community partnership with Free Bikes 4 Kidz
About 65 Springfield Public Schools families left the district office with a smile on their face last week.
The Lane County community over the summer donated about 30 bicycles to Free Bikes 4 Kidz. The organization, that works to get bicycles into the hands of children who don't yet have them, then worked with several community organizations, including Safe Route to School and Springfield Public Schools teachers, to identify families who might benefit from having a new bike. Free Bikes 4 Kidz and Safe Routes to School then supported distribution of the bikes - which took place last week. Students who didn’t receive a bicycle were given a scooter.
As was evident by the photos taken at the giveaway, smiles were abundant.
