JPMorgan Chase Donates Bikes to Children’s Aid Youth

Yesterday, JPMorgan Chase hosted a “Build-A-Bike” event to benefit 16 kids from our Dunlevy Milbank Community Center in Central Harlem. The Build-A-Bike took place at JPMorgan Chase’s corporate headquarters in Manhattan, where volunteers competed in teams to assemble 16 brand new bikes valued at $1,600. At first, the volunteers were told that they would just be assembling the bikes on their own, but all 16 children surprised the group by showing up to demonstrate their appreciation, test the bikes out and receive biking instruction from the volunteers before taking the gifts home. The group from JPMorgan was thrilled that they had the opportunity to meet the kids.

Thank you, JPMorgan Chase, for enriching the lives of our youth by enabling them to enjoy bike riding and recreation!
