The bike drive was held on Saturday, December 21st, 2013 from 11AM-1PM at Phichol Williams Community Center in the Southwest area of Homestead. Students from West Homestead Elementary School and Laura C. Saunders Elementary School who maintained a GPA of 4.00 were selected to receive bicycles as a Christmas gift. Papa John’s Pizza and Krispy Kreme donuts sponsored the event, providing pizza and delivering donuts to add joy for the children present.
“I am always pleased to serve the citizens of the Southwest area, especially now in Christmas where many parents may have difficulties getting gifts for their children,” said Councilman Williams. “When I see smiles on these kids’ faces, our efforts feel much more rewarding.”
