All Bruneau Elementary School Students Receive Free Bikes Courtesy of the USS Foundation
Rancho Cucamonga, CA – December 23, 2013 – Just in time for the holidays, the non-profit USS Foundation raised funds through their Adopt-A-Bike program to donate new bicycles to every student at Bruneau Elementary School in Bruneau, ID, on December 12.
Adopt-A-Bike donates free bicycles to underprivileged children at schools across the nation to encourage them to work hard, obey the rules, stay in school and break the cycle of poverty.
“Because of the continuing tough economy, these bikes may be the only Christmas gift under the tree this year for many of these kids” said Adel Sayegh, founder of the USS Foundation. “I grew up in poverty, so I understand how difficult it can be to struggle to make a better life. I’ve dedicated my life to giving back to others by instilling in them the self confidence and drive to work hard, stay in school and reach for their dreams.”
The event was make possible through the generosity of 2 Men and a Truck, St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital, TransOrient, Wal-Mart, Kip Bollin, Joseph Corbet, Craig Cunningham, Cita Doyle, Bert Flores, Will Fox, Paul Marino, Chad McIntosh, Mia and Robert Oberosler, Howard Peterson, Andrew Salisbury, Scott Sher, Bill Turner, and Karen Valledares.
The USS Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping less fortunate children have the tools, skills and knowledge to build a better life with a hope for a brighter tomorrow. The USS Foundation’s Adopt-A-Bike program has donated over 1,400 bikes to disadvantaged children in Alabama, California, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio.
