The New Orleans Police Department’s First District is asking for donations of $50 to purchase bicycles for the Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade students at Phyllis Wheatley Community School.
This is the 5th year N.O.P.D.’s First District is giving bikes to school kids. A different school is chosen each year. This year, the bikes will go to students at Phyllis Wheatley Community School at 2300 Dumaine Street.
Most of the students at Phyllis Wheatley are very needy (but not all). The School Resource Officer got a head count of the Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Graders; approximately 200 students need bicycles.
If you have any questions or would like to donate a check for 50 dollars, please do not hesitate to call Detective Kenneth Gill at (504) 658-6398 or email Detective Gill at [email protected]
