All Bellevue kindergarten and first grade students were gifted with bicycles and helmets for Christmas this year, due to the generous donation from Laura Wilburn and the Urban Bike Project.
When Ms. Wilburn reached out to the community center about the bikes the staff couldn’t have been more thrilled at the chance to get to honor the students for their hard work during remote learning.
“It’s amazing that through community connections and partnerships we can allow opportunities to our kids!” says Chrissy Jeffery, Curriculum Coordinator & Summer Camp Director for Bellevue “These bikes give opportunity to some of our kids who may not have been able to [get something like this for Christmas]. It’s exciting to see the kids smile and to get to reward them. Remote learning can be tough.”
Bikes were given away to students last with a bike that miraculously fit each child’s personality. The students were thrilled.
Thank you Ms. Wilburn and the Urban Bike Project for making this an unforgettable holiday for these students.
