St. Paul Public Housing Agency Partners with Free Bikes 4 Kidz

From the St. Paul Public Housing Agency's newsletter:

The PHA partnered with Free Bikes 4 Kidz for the ninth year of youth bike giveaways in April and May 2021. During a typical year, bike events occur in early winter at each family site, but as we all know 2020 was not a typical year. The COVID-19 pandemic pushed back our usual timeline for bike events into the spring. This new timeline created some scheduling challenges for our expert bike moving partner, Two Men and a Truck, since spring is a busy moving season for their crews. PHA families, however, were thrilled about the shift in timeline because the youth were able to hop on their bikes and start pedaling right away with no snow in sight!

This year we matched 151 PHA youth and families with a fitted bicycle, helmet and, of course, face masks. PHA's overall total is now 1,971 bikes and helmets for PHA families since 2012. Wow!
