One of the greatest parts of giving is seeing the reactions of those who receive. It has been said that it is a far greater blessing to give than it is to receive. At REAL MEN Hamilton, we have certainly found that to be true.
During new Covid19 regulations, we were not able to greet the children at Mission Services’s 196 After School Program, as we usually do, to adjust seat heights and fit helmets; however, we can rest assured that this latest batch of quality used bikes did find very worthwhile new homes.
In July, REAL MEN Hamilton partnered with Mission Services to provide quality used bikes and new bike helmets to 13 children in our inner-city. To children in Hamilton, a bike represents increased outdoor activity, further connections with friends and family, improved healthy lifestyle, and a sense of independence and achievement that very few other gifts could provide.
REAL MEN Hamilton would like to thank all the staff at Mission Services for their welcoming and inclusive approach to partnering with us, to ensure children in Hamilton benefit from the gift of wheels this summer.
Together, we can make a difference.
