Bike drive for local veterans

Elizabeth Peeler, Shanil Jasani, Abigail Drago and Elyse Broussard

Kelly High School’s Youth-Leadership Southeast Texas (Y-LSET) Team has partnered with Leadership Southeast Texas and West Brook High School’s Y-LSET Team to collect used bicycles for veterans. The program was designed to fulfill military veterans’ requests for bicycles to help them seek and maintain employment. All donations will benefit Jefferson County veterans and their families.

The Wheels for Warriors Bike Drive will culminate March 5 when team members clean and tune up used bikes as well as assemble new bikes purchased through donations made to the project. To donate a used adult or child bicycle, contact LSET member Nancy Correa at ncorrea [at] setxnonprofit [dot] org.
