That’s what 9 young people were saying Wednesday morning after they received the bikes that they earned for putting in 30 hours of community work.
Tim Horton’s has run the Earn a Bike Program every year for the last 15 years. These children, between the ages of 9 and 12 years, were selected by SSM Police Service who also coordinated the program and provided supervision while the children were out completing 30 hours of community service by cleaning up local parks and schools or assisting a local community group.
“The ‘Earn a Bike’ program is a great way to teach kids about teamwork and the value of working toward something,” said Craig Holub, Tim Horton’s Restaurant Owner “We are so proud to sponsor this program and I would like to congratulate all of the kids on their hard work and dedication to completing their 30 hours each of community service. They should all feel proud to know that the bikes and helmets they are receiving are so well-deserved.”
