GREEN BAY, Wis. (Dec. 12, 2018) — Contract Transport Services (CTS), a trucking company headquartered in Green Bay, is giving away nearly 100 bicycles this Sunday as part of its 4th Annual Holiday Bike Drive.
CTS was recently honored as a Green Bay-area 2018 Ethics in Business Award Nominee, based on its work in the community, including the Annual Holiday Bike Drive. Each year CTS hosts a bike drive to provide for area youth in need. This year it collected nearly 100 brand new bikes donated by CTS employees and business partners, including truck manufacturer Kenworth.
“Our Annual Bike Drive has once again delivered in a big way. We will be handing out over 90 bikes to kids, which will make it a very special holiday for them. At CTS, we drive to instill in all of our employees the values of family and community ,” says CTS President, Curt Reitz. “ I am extremely proud of how our employees continue to rise to the challenge of giving rather than receiving during this time of year. A special thanks to our drivers, who during 60-to 70-hour work weeks make time to go out and provide these kids with that special gift.”
CTS is partnering with local foster care program Foundations Health and Wholeness, and the Brown County PALS Program, to gift area youth with new wheels on from 9-11 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16 at the CTS Shop at 1634 Cofrin Drive, Green Bay. Reitz, who also coaches the 8th grade girls’ Notre Dame Tritons Futures basketball team, will have his team present to assist with the event and support other community youth.
Photo/video and interview opportunities will be available at the event.
Foundations Health and Wholeness has a foster program that serves Northeast Wisconsin children placed in care who are in need of intensive care and nurturing away from their home. The program also offers comprehensive Independent Living Skills to ensure children are prepared when they turn 18 and leave foster care.
The Brown County PALS Program is a service of Brown County Human Services Department. The PALS Program matches children who are referred by Child Protective Services with an adult volunteer, couple, or family. Children age 3 and older benefit from the PALS Program.
