2020 Linden 5th Grade Elementary Holiday Bike Giveaway – Fulfilling Dreams

During these challenging times where everything is different and complicated — remote learning, wearing masks, staying in, staying home, and compounding uncertainty — fulfilling holiday wishes and dreams for our Linden students, this year, has become even more important!

For the fourth consecutive year, New Salem and the Community of Caring Development Foundation look forward to their excited faces when they sit down on the seat of their new bike — often for the first time. We have an opportunity to fulfill the holiday wishes of well-deserving 5th-grade children living in Linden by providing them their own bicycles. We will deliver the bikes to the students at East Linden Elementary School on Dec. 19.

Today, 75% of the elementary school children in Linden are living below the poverty line. The Holiday Bike Giveaway presents a wonderful opportunity to bring great joy and happiness to young children and their families during the holiday season.

This community initiative is being sponsored by New Salem Church through its 501 C3 non-profit arm: The Community of Caring Development Foundation. We invite you to join us in planting seeds of hope and happiness in such a simple yet amazing way to invest in both the present and future of young Linden elementary students.
