Books Brains and Bicycles 2017

""Books Brains and Bicycles" has provided teachers and students in LMISD now Tcisd first grade with school supplies. These supplies are provided directly to each classroom teachers, they include journals, crayon, pencils, glue, erasers,markers,map colors and hand sanitizer.
Since our start 5 years ago we have provided supplies to over 900 students. These supplies are used to replenish items broken or depleted throughout the school year and for students that are not able to afford them.
In 2013 we were challenged to provide a bike for a needy first grader, our donors met and exceeded this goal and provided a new bike for a deserving child in each 1st grade class in LMISD.
  This year our goal is to provide a new bike for each 1st grade student  at our  target School La Marque Primary.  or bout 250 bikes
The cost of each 20 inch bike is about 49.95 plus tax (Walmart) or roughly $56.00. 100% of the money raised will go to the purchase of bikes and school supplies, less fees required to fund this site or about 8%. You may purchase a bike yourself, we will pick it up, or you can use this site to make a donation that will be used to purchase bicycles. Bikes will be given away in December before the Christmas break, all items are purchased locally to keep your money in your community.
Please contact us at 409 5392319 for more info or for us to pick up your bicycle donation.
