What’s better than full circle community partnership?
“Hands On Nashville helped [Edgehill Bike Club] get on our feet three years ago when they donated 40 bikes to us,” said Edgehill Bike Club Founder Terry Key. “Now we get the chance to give back to HON by donating bikes to the ReCYCLE for Kids program.”
The Edgehill Bike Club’s mission is to change lives one child at a time by combining the refurbishing of bikes with regular bike rallies and mentoring — its relationship with Hands On Nashville goes back to the very beginning in 2013. At that time, Hands On Nashville helped Edgehill start its bike club with a donation of 40 bikes to get the wheels rolling.
For the fourth year running, Hands On Nashville is hosting a community-wide ReCYCLE for Kids drive to collect bikes to connect with community youth. As part of the initiative, volunteers help restore pre-loved bikes before they are gifted to young people, along with a new helmet, lock, safety education and more.
When Terry and his team saw Hands On Nashville’s call for a few more bike donations this summer, they reached out in support. With their own donation of 40+ bikes, Edgehill is bringing the partnership full circle.
“We love Hands On Nashville and the good works they are doing in the Nashville area,” Terry said. “Thank YOU for the opportunity to return the three year old favor!”
Thank you, Edgehill Bike Club, for your support to pedal RECYCLE for Kids forward this year!
