Web posted on July 07, 2014

The 12th annual Tim Horton's Earn A Bike program ran last week from Monday June 30-Friday July 4. In total, fourteen Guelph youths between the ages of 9 13 each worked thirty hours of community service throughout the Guelph area. They Guelph Police Service organized and supervised the week.

The kids did everything from washing cruisers to picking up garbage to transplanting trees. New this year, the Guelph Fire Department took the kids for a day where they washed fire trucks and did gardening around the stations as some of the day's work with GFD.

City Transit supplied any required transportation for the kids during the week and also donated a back pack and a water bottle to the kids that completed their hours.

On Friday evening, July 4, the participants along with their families attended to the Guelph Police Station for the presentation of their bikes. Also in attendance, Mayor Karen Farbridge, Counselor Leanne Piper, Guelph Police Service board member Len Griffiths, Chief Bryan Larkin, Senior Leadership Team members from the Guelph Police Service, representation from the Guelph Fire Department as well as from Tim Horton's corporate office and local Tim Horton owners. Tim Horton's donated the bicycle, helmet, lock, bell and bottle holder that each child received. Thank you Tim Horton's.
