WESTBROOK / —

On Oct. 14, the Westbrook Elks Lodge sponsored a Bikes for Kids collection at the lodge. The collection was held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and produced more than 200 bikes.

Bikes for Kids collects bikes in any condition, reconditions them, and distributes to those in need. To date, Bikes for Kids has donated more than 16,000 bicycles, providing kids in need with the enjoyment of owning and riding their own bicycle.
