Foxborough, MA Thirty-two second-grade students at the Foxborough Regional Charter School recently received early Christmas gifts – brand-new bicycles and helmets, courtesy of building contractor Suffolk, which were presented during a ceremony in the school gymnasium.
Working in partnership with the nonprofit Wish for Wheels organization, Suffolk funded and built the bicycles given to the FRCS students. They were part of a total 100 bikes that were assembled by company employee volunteers during their quarterly leadership meeting at Gillette Stadium and donated to second-graders in the Foxborough Public Schools.
“Suffolk rocked our kids’ lives with their generous donation,” said Mark Logan, Ph.D., executive director of the Foxborough Regional Charter School. “Pure joy and awe have been the constant themes since they surprised our kids with new bikes and helmets. In this season of giving, they have made a tremendous difference in the lives of so many students.”
