Local 769 Helps Deliver 110 Bikes

DSC01587Over the weekend Teamsters Local 769 partnered up with and sponsored the 100 Black Men (Greater Fort Lauderdale Chapter), for their 9th annual bike drive. Our Mission is “To improve the quality of life of African/Caribbean American families through the enhancement of educational and economic opportunities within or community” said Dennis Wright-President.

DSC01575On Saturday, December 20, 2014 at a park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 110 fully assembled bikes were awarded academically to the students in the greater Fort Lauderdale area. “I was very impressed when I found out the bikes were awarded academically to multiple schools (elementary and middle). Once the students achieved the academic requirements, a letter was sent home inviting the students and the parents to today’s great event at the park” said David Renshaw, of the Teamsters Local 769-Human Rights Commission.
