Hoboken kids receive free bikes
What makes Hoboken a great community…
In a truly non-political community event yesterday, 36 lucky Hoboken kids received bikes over at the Boys and Girls Club at 123 Jefferson Street.
As part of a bike safety program that Hoboken Police Officers Joseph Cahill and William “Chubby” James created last year to educate residents about bike safety and theft prevention – The NCAA and Jersey City Medical Center provided enough bikes and helmets to give to three dozen lucky Hoboken children at no charge. Many Stevens Institute of Technology students contributed their time by assembling the bikes.
Lieutenant Ken Ferrante, as well as Police Officers William Oquendo and Bobby Truppner also took part in the days event.
Jay Garcia, the Director of the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club gave a great talk about why the children should appreciate the kind gestures from others.
All in all, a great example of how there is so much to love about the Mile Square. See video of the event below:
