Building Bikes for Underprivileged Kids

‘Tis the season of charitable giving. For the second year in a row, the employees at Kudela & Weinheimer have volunteered to build bikes for Elves & More.  It is so much fun and thoroughly rewarding to build these bikes! Our employees get to spend some team building time outside of the work environment.

Elves & More is a non-profit organization that provides bicycles for underprivileged kids. However, they don’t just provide bikes, the kids must earn them. To earn a bike, a child must enter into a contract with his or her teacher or school and must meet at least one of the following criteria: 1) attend school regularly, and be on time, 2) behave well in class, 3) attend tutoring classes or Saturday school where necessary, 4) improve their grades in one or more areas or 5) whatever else the teacher believes a particular child needs to improve upon.

Check out the good time we had!
