The Knights of Columbus Council 8419 recently purchased bikes and trikes for ChildNet Services in West Palm Beach for local foster children. Project 425 of Loxahatchee Groves transferred the more than 90 bikes via two restored army vehicles from Walmart in West Palm Beach to the ChildNet building on Okeechobee Blvd. on Saturday, Dec. 8.
The Project 425 crew met at the ranch headquarters at 7 a.m. and proceeded to Walmart. Meeting the Knights of Columbus Council 8419, everyone worked together to load up all the bikes and convoyed to the ChildNet offices at the Children’s Home Society building.
The group arrived about an hour earlier than the children and enjoyed breakfast. The children and their foster guardians and parents started arriving, and many took turns sitting on Santa’s lap.
Everyone had breakfast, then lined up in the parking lot for the bike giveaway. All the children received a brand new bike or trike, along with a protective helmet.
