A group of students in Central Collegiate’s Leadership 20 class is looking for donations of gently used bikes. 

The students have once again partnered with the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council for their annual bike drive. The bikes will be given to newcomers in our community so that they have a form of transportation. 

If you have got any bikes that are gently used sitting around and not being use, why not donate it to someone who could actually use it,” said Leadership 20 student Mohamad Jello. 

The students had the choice of what organizations they wanted to work with. Other projects include Moose Jaw Transition House, the Moose Jaw Food Bank and Moose Jaw Victim Services and the Moose Jaw Police Service. 

Daniel Cowan, Brady Hammond, Jello, Pratham Singh, Ethan Volk and Elijah Apuada decided to take on the challenge of the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council’s bike drive. 

For Jello, he wanted to get involved because he had personally benefitted from the program. 

“I was a newcomer last year, so I did get a bike from the same project, so it makes me happy. I’d like to make other people happy too,” he said. 

In past years, the bike drive has received over 50 bikes. As of Friday, 70 newcomers have registered for the program. 

Anyone interested in donating a bike can contact Moose Jaw Multicultural Council Settlement Worker In Schools (SWIS) Nik Cochrane at 306-690-5832 or email swis.highschool@mjmcinc.ca.
