The electrical contracting company Weifield Group, which has offices in Colorado, Wyoming and Texas, donated 50 bicycles and helmets to the school. Weifield Group employees spent a week assembling the bicycles for the students.
Wish for Wheels, a nonprofit that provides bicycles to Title I elementary schools, helped out with the donation.
Wieland Elementary Principal Jared Stevenson greeted the Weifield employees along with teachers, staff and students. Several students immediately strapped on helmets to take a victory lap around the school’s playground. Students at home watched the event online.
Both in-person and virtual students received bicycles.
