Thank You Turning Wheels For Kids
45 Children in Affordable Housing Received Bikes for Christmas


LifeSTEPS received a donation of 45 brand new bikes from Turning Wheels for Kids during the 2014 holiday season. The donated bikes came with helmets and locks and were distributed to children living in 10 affordable housing communities, including Clarendon Street Apartments in San Jose.


Among the recipients there were brothers Kyle and Chuck. They are active in the LifeSTEPS After School Program at Clarendon Street and their mother, Sandra, has attended educational programs, such as Job Skills & Employment Counseling. The boys are part of the ASP Cleanup Crew and volunteer to help other kids with their homework.


Sandra was always on the look out at second hand stores for bikes for her kids. They had bikes but they were old and constantly in need of repair. It was her goal to provide bikes for the boys at Christmas but on her limited income she was not sure she could make it happen. Thanks to the partnership that LifeSTEPS has established with Turning Wheels for Kids, her boys were elated to receive new bikes.


This donation took a lot of financial pressure of Sandra allowing the family to enjoy their Christmas. They feel honored and grateful to have been selected. Kyle and Chuck are just two of 45 children living in LifeSTEPS communities that received bikes. Every child has a story to tell and last Christmas each story ended with a bike!  


Thank you Turning Wheels for Kids!
