Lutheran Social Services New Americans

Wheels galore!
Team Boaz provides 107 bikes to new Americans

Big smiles and lots of grateful new Americans were evident at the annual Team Boaz Bicycle Giveaway held June 4 at Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota in Fargo. The event was held over from its original date of May 27 because of inclement weather.

Refugee clients who arrived over the past year received 107 refurbished bicycles from Team Boaz, a community partnership that collects, repairs and distributes good used bikes of all sizes to new American families.

The donated bikes were cleaned, repaired and delivered to Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota for distribution by Team Boaz volunteers, Each bicycle was selected and fitted to a refugee by a volunteer, and then registered and licensed. The bikes were then loaded up and delivered to refugees’ homes.
