EAST Students Helping Veterans and Their Community

Mena EAST 7th Grade Students, Isabel Vacca, Jackson Howard, Dallas Castillo, and Yennyte Tecson, started a project to support people in their community who do not have transportation to school or work.  They informed the community, receiving six bikes to date.  By partnering with the VA Medical Clinic, they located a Veteran in need of transportation.  To prepare the bike for presentation, students aired tires, oiled the chain and brake, painted the bike, added reflectors, and a basket to make the bike as useful as possible. Students said, “the best part was watching his excitement as he rode off on the bike”.  Thank you to the community for all the generosity and kindness in supporting EAST. Thank you for the bike donations:  Calvin Harrison,  Barbara Thompson, and Bryan Maye.  If you would like to donate to this project or any project, please contact Mena EAST
