Royal Oak – More than 200 children waiting to be adopted in Wayne County have never had the opportunity to experience the joy of owning new bicycles. That will soon change with the generosity and months of planning from GM Warren Transmission Operations and UAW Local 909 employees who have fundraised to donate brand new bikes on Saturday.
“We would like to thank the men and women of Warren Transmission Operations for once again donating their time, effort and money to support such a worthwhile organization in our local community. In addition to the foster kids program, the Judson Center provides services for autism and vocational skills training,” said Mike Dulaney, plant manager, Warren Transmission Operations.
In addition, Channel 955/WKQI and Time Team Detroit, a volunteer program created by morning radio program Mojo In The Morning, are donating new bike helmets that will be delivered to Judson Center’s Royal Oak campus that same day, which will guarantee smiles to each child waiting adoption ranging in ages from one to 18.
The Judson Center is a non-profit human service agency that serves more than 6,500 individuals and families each year. More information about the center may be found at judsoncenter.org.
