Each year for the last 22 years, students at Buckeye Career Center in New Philadelphia have been refurbishing bikes for Share-A-Christmas. "Our Buckeye Career Center students and staff are blessed to have so much support from our community. This is a way of giving back to our community and saying thank you," said Superintendent Bob Alsept. Rick Strimbu, Employability Instructor, heads up the project. People donate new and gently used bikes to the Career Center, or bikes/scooters arrive through the Indian Valley FFA/WJER toy drive. After students clean up the used bikes and assemble all the new bikes, Share-A-Christmas gives participants a coupon to redeem the bikes directly at Buckeye. "Participants usually come the last day we have school," said Strimbu, "My students love playing Santa's elves and helping pass out the bikes." This year there were over 100 bikes distributed.
