Servicemembers Build Bikes for Kids at Fort Carson
Colorado Springs – On August 25, around 100 servicemembers will gather at Fort Carson to build 50 bikes, then deliver them to Fort Carson Middle. The event was coordinated by Volunteers of America and sponsored by Weifield; a construction group devoted to doing good within the community.
Anyone visiting post must have a REAL ID (identifiable by a star in the top right corner). Otherwise, a birth certificate and social security card will be necessary for access.
WHEN: Thursday, August 25 10am – 1pm for build.
WHERE: 1532 Specker Ave, Ft. Carson
ELEMENTS: Visuals of the bike build, interviews available with VOA, Weifield, and servicemembers
The bikes are currently set to be dropped off at 4pm at the middle school, which is less than two miles away from the build site. That time is subject to change. VOA can send photos / videos to media outlets who cannot stay that long.
