If you know us, The Bay Six Project, we are all about doing basic/practical projects that help meet the basic needs of those in the community. From providing food, drinks, backpacks, and other things like Christmas gifts, to making sure there is a relaxing, safe space for families and individuals to be able to hang out, we are always looking to find new ways to help make the lives of those in the community better. We aren't just a charity, but rather an organization that wants to help instill value in those of our community. That is especially true during an unprecedented time, such as the Covid-19 pandemic that we are currently in the midst of. One idea that we, along with our partner(s) in this effort (One Love Skate), think does just that is making sure that every kid has as much of a normal childhood as possible; part of that being the ability to get outside and cruise around the neighborhood instead of being cooped up in the house all spring and summer.
The Bay Six: Wheels project focuses on making sure that every kid has something of their own to ride on this year. We know that there is just something special that happens when you get a new set of wheels of your own. So our goal is to provide every school aged student (3-18) with a new bike, scooter, or skateboard this spring. We will also work to make sure each student has a proper helmet as well. Hopefully, we can help make the spring/summer of 2021 memorable for more than just living through a pandemic.
How it works:
We will have an online sign up period from Wednesday, February 3, 2021 until Wednesday, March 10, 2021 and a pick up day on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm at our location (618 Commercial St. Mingo Jct., OH 43938).
If you live local to Mingo Junction, Ohio and your child is in need of a new bicycle, skateboard, or scooter, please follow the link on this page to fill out the form that collects the information needed for us to get your child some new wheels. If you live elsewhere, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see what we can do to include your child in this giveaway.
We are all on this planet together at this particular time, so let's make the best of it and make sure that our kids have an amazing spring/summer this year!! They are worth it!
