Farmers-Lechner Agency was fortunate enough to be able to set up at the KSD Back to School Resource Fair to promote our FREE bicycle program!
We are proud to announce that we have been able to deliver 14 of the 41 bicycle requests we received at the Fair. Our goal is to deliver all 41! 
We could use a little help from our community:
  1. Gently used bicycles we can go through and find a new home
  2. Donations in the form of cash, check or gift cards for parts
We will post pics of the kiddo receiving bicycles, only after they have given permission, so you can enjoy the smiles as much as we do!
