BISD: Haltom City Business Donates 130 New Bicycles To Local Elementary Students
The City of Haltom City is coordinating the 18th Annual Christmas Promise Bike Build with their local office of Waste Connections. The staff at Waste Connections, Inc. raised money, purchased and built 130 new bicycles and helmets to be donated to students at W.T. Francisco Elementary school. W.T. Francisco Elementary school was selected this year based on their needs and because they participate in our annual Christmas on Broadway. Keith Lane, City Manager of Haltom City said, “We are very proud of our partnership with Waste Connections, Inc. and this event is a testament to their commitment to serving our community – especially our kids.”
At 8:30 a.m. on Friday, December 21, 2018, parents and families gathered at the gym to pick up their child’s free bicycle and helmet for Christmas! Staff from Waste Connections, Inc., representatives from Haltom City, and staff from W.T. Francisco Elementary were on hand to give away the bicycles.
Last year Waste Connections, Inc. donated over 8,000 bikes to children across the USA. They hope to exceed that number this year through their staff’s generous donation of time and finances to give back to the community that they serve. Haltom City is proud to be home to this community-minded business and thank them for their service in Haltom City.
