Union Career Connect is asking for bicycle donations for its annual Bikes for Kids Project.

Organizers are taking bikes in any condition.

"Union CPT Manufacturing and City of Tulsa Automotive interns work together with our community partners to repair donated bikes, which are then given to Union elementary students," said Jenny Flower, Career Connect coordinator. "This event gives our community a chance to help children who do not have bikes of their own. It also gives our interns a chance to build confidence in the skills they have learned in fixing things, and offers them an opportunity to use their talents to help bring joy to younger Union students."

Students will work with adults to repair the bikes on November 15 at the Union Warehouse.

The Union Career Connect will be accepting bikes until November 13, officials say.

Bikes can be dropped off at the Union Collegiate Academy entrance from 8;30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. during school hours.
