Brady-Sullivan donates 1,000 bikes to underprivileged children in region
December 18, 2018
NASHUA – Team members at Brady-Sullivan Properties spent part of their weekend loading 1,000 new bicycles for delivery to organizations serving underprivileged children and families in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
The purpose of the project is to ensure the new bicycles reach children before Christmas, focusing on distribution within the primary communities served by Brady-Sullivan in New Hampshire (Manchester, Nashua and Laconia), Massachusetts (Worcester, Lawrence and Clinton) and Rhode Island (Providence, Coventry, Pawtucket and Johnston).
To achieve this goal, 1,000 new bicycles of various sizes were purchased by Brady-Sullivan at Walmart stores in Manchester and Bedford, and then assembled by Walmart staff at both locations in slightly more than one week. Employees in all three states teamed up to help determine areas of need in their regions, together helping to coordinate delivery trucks, drivers and distributions to a number of organizations, including, but not limited to:
? Coventry Human Services;
? Families in Transition – New Horizons;
? Girls Inc.;
? Habitat for Humanity;
? Providence Housing Authority;
? The Moore Center;
? The Webster House; and
?The Worcester Youth Center.
“This has been a really amazing community team-building experience,” Kim Brady of Brady-Sullivan said. “From the staff at Brady-Sullivan who embraced this project, to all of the drivers and technicians who gave up their weekends to help load trucks and make deliveries, to the Walmart teams in Manchester and Bedford, everyone really went above and beyond to give back. We are so proud to be a part of the communities we work in, and to support others in need during the holidays.”
