EHBA seeks ‘Bikes for Kids’ sponsors

The Eastern Henrico Business Association (EHBA), with the help of title sponsor The Shops at White Oak Village, is working on a project to provide four bikes to each elementary school throughout the Varina District.

A total of 44 bikes and helmets will be needed to accomplish the EHBA objective of donating four bikes per school. The bikes – two boys' and two girls' bikes per school – will be displayed from late April to early May as an incentive for students to try their best on their SOL tests. Every child who tries hard when taking the tests will have his or her name included in a drawing for the bikes, to be conducted by the school principal after the tests are over.

EHBA is asking for contributions of $100 to purchase a bike and helmet, but any amount will be accepted. Individuals, businesses, associations or clubs can sponsor an entire elementary school with a $400 contribution and will have the opportunity to deliver the bikes to the school.

Checks (made out to "EHBA/Bikes for Kids") can be mailed to EHBA, P.O. Box 816, Sandston VA 23150.
