Groups Join Up For Bike Donation

The Knights of Columbus Peter A. Benvenuti Council 8419 from St. Rita Catholic Church in Wellington and Mike Carroll’s Project 425 met at the Royal Palm Beach Walmart on Saturday, Dec. 19. They loaded 101 bikes on Carroll’s military cargo truck and took them out to Pahokee and Belle Glade. Dr. Paul Casanova organized the bike and helmet donation. The helmets were donated by the Children’s Helmet Initiative Legislative Defense Fund (CHILD). Walmart gave the Knights of Columbus special discount pricing for the 101 bikes.
