The Wayne County 4-H Advisory Committee is  continuing the “Bikes for Kids” service project and is encouraging all clubs to take part.  This past year we built and donated 54 bikes to the Wayne County Children’s Services, Salvation Army, and People to People Ministries Christmas programs for less fortunate kids.

Our Junior Leaders have consented to build the bicycles and are challenging each 4-H club to raise or donate enough money to purchase at least one bike (approximate cost $65.00). If each of our 4-H clubs raised or donated enough money to purchase one bike, we would have 45.  Some clubs may want to do two or three bikes, which would provide even more!

Please start talking about this opportunity with your clubs! Each LINK from now to the end of the year will have information and updates on clubs that are giving/raising funds. Money can be given at any  time of the year, but MUST be turned in to the Extension office by September 30th. Please discuss with your club how many bikes they might want to donate for Christmas.  Let us know about your club’s progress or plans!
