Hands On Nashville gave 200 elementary school students refurbished bikes and helmets on Saturday.

The event, which is part of the ReCYCLE for Kids program, was held at McFerrin Park Community Center.

After receiving their bikes, each child completed a skills course and took part in road safety activities.

Nearly 150 businesses and individuals donated used children’s bikes to Hands On Nashville last fall. Volunteers then worked to refurbish them.

“This is truly a volunteer-driven effort, from the donations of used bikes to financial contributions we received during The Big Payback to support the cost of new helmets for the kids,” said Hands On Nashville President and CEO Brian Williams. “ReCYCLE for Kids harnesses the volunteer spirit of this community and puts it to action.”

Hands on Nashville uses volunteerism to tackle several community issues such as hunger, homelessness and environmental protection.
