What happens when you pair caring volunteers with local kids and challenge them to assemble bikes? United Way’s Build-A-Bike! Last week, 400 volunteers joined United Way and more than 150 local kids at Heinz Field for the sixth annual #BuildABikePgh. Each child left that day with new skills in teamwork, communication and – for many of them – their first bike they can enjoy all summer long. Thank you to everyone who made this day a success, especially the sponsors, UPMC and Northwest Bank!
We are thankful for wonderful partners like United Way and the many wonderful smiles on our kids’ faces. They especially loved the obstacle course and the personalized license plates!
