THANK YOU KKR!


This past spring the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor was asked to particapate in a bike essay contest sponsored by KKR & CO. L.P.. The club members were asked to write a short essay on “why they deserved a bike” and “why bikes were better for the environment.” Originally, only 20 winners were suppose to be selected, but KKR was so moved by the essays that they collected donations from their employees and award bikes to all the kids that particapated in the contest. For the majority of the winners, this was the first bike they have ever owned. It is these types of generous gestures by great people, like those from KKR, that restore hope during these challenging times. So on behalf of the over 8,000 youth served annually in our organization, and the 70 club members that were awarded bicycles, I would like to say THANK YOU!
