USS Foundation Donates Free Bikes to Students at K.E.C. Canal Point Elementary School
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 88 students at K.E.C. Canal Point Elementary School in Canal Point, FL, on December 13. Bike recipients were chosen for their effort, achievement and behavior.
To encourage student excellence throughout the school year, 12 additional bikes will also be presented in June to recognize two outstanding students in each grade based on the same criteria.
Adopt-A-Bike donates free bicycles to disadvantaged children at schools across the nation to encourage them to work hard, obey the rules, stay in school and break the cycle of poverty.
“The incredible students at K.E.C. Canal Point Elementary represent the future of this country, and Adopt-A-Bike will help encourage them to build on their dreams,” said Adel Sayegh, founder and CEO of the USS Foundation. “Because of the continuing tough economy, these bikes may be the only Christmas gift under the tree this year for many of these kids. 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 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.
