Elks Lodge 151, based in Stafford, donated 41 bicycles and helmets to the students, who were surprised to learn of their new modes of transportation during a Christmas celebration ceremony at the school.
The Elks Lodge raised the money for the bicycles and helmets, and then purchased them at a discount rate at the Academy Sports + Outdoors in Sugar Land. Elks Lodge 151 has been a strong supporter of Stafford MSD, from the primary and elementary campuses all the way up to Stafford High School, and its culinary arts program.
The students were ecstatic to receive the bicycles. Elks Lodge members emphasized the importance of bicycle safety, especially wearing helmets at all times.
