Manufacturing and Automotive students through Union’s Career Connect program and the City of Tulsa Learning With a Wrench program are spending the day at the Union Warehouse, fixing up donated bikes to give way fro the holiday season.
For several years now, the students, the city of Tulsa and Union educators - including Fred Isaacs, director of Construction Services for Union, team up every year for Bikes for Kids, providing refurbished bicycles to local families in need.
LaQuisha Jackson, career advisor for Career Connect, helps oversee the program. (She's the one in the funny ears.)
For the past month, the community has donated bikes and bike helmets for the project. Organizers hoped to have some 60 or so bikes, particularly bikes for younger kids, to be ready for giveaways.
Thank you to students, organizers and the community for coming together on this project!
