This summer Richard Howell, Construction Crew Manager, has divided his time between his regular role with Community Construction and distributing bikes for the BikePlus program. Individuals with transportation barriers, people looking to better their health, or folks who just want to enjoy bike riding all have the opportunity to receive a free bike through our Bike Plus program.
Last week at the Lincoln Park Farmer’s Market, Richard passed out 10 bikes to kids who didn’t have one. The two girls in the photo were so grateful for their new bikes, as was their mother, who thanked Richard for saving her $200 on new bikes. She can now use that money towards food and other necessities, and getting the girls ready for the upcoming school year.
