CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte employees helped build 75 bikes Saturday morning for students in a youth development program.
The program, Right Moves For Youth, is a school-based program that works with local law enforcement and the community to help middle school and high school students succeed.
"We are so grateful to the City of Charlotte and The Spokes Group for giving back to our students in the community," said Tayuanee Dewberry, executive director of Right Moves For Youth. "The best part is seeing the students' reactions when they receive the bikes. Absolutely priceless."
Officials said The Spokes Group donated the bikes and city employees and family members are working to put them together.
"Our employees look forward to this event each year," said Chris Trull, division director for City of Charlotte Department of General Services' Fleet Management Division. "It's great to watch employees bring their kids and other friends and family to spend a morning putting these bikes together."
Right Moves For Youth plans to deliver all the bikes to students before the holidays.
