Chiquita Canyon continued its legacy as a good neighbor, by helping make the holiday season a little brighter for children at the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley and Santa Clarita Grocery.
This year, over 100 bicycles and 70 scooters were assembled by landfill employees and delivered to the nonprofit organizations as part of Waste Connection’s 22nd Annual Christmas Promise Bike Build Program.
“Chiquita Canyon is always honored and excited to constantly support and contribute to our local nonprofits,” said Steve Cassulo, District Manager of Chiquita Canyon. “There is no greater feeling than watching the children receive these gifts, and even more, seeing their faces and excitement because for some it is their first bike. It makes the holidays that much more exciting for these kids.”
Christmas Promise Bike Build is a Waste Connections annual tradition of providing thousands of bicycles for underprivileged children across the country. Now in its 22nd year, with the help from partners and local businesses, Christmas Promise Bike Build purchases and assembles bikes each holiday season and donates them to local charities.
Locally, Chiquita Canyon built and delivered 100 bikes and 45 scooters to the Boys and Girls Club and 26 bikes and 26 scooters to Santa Clarita Grocery, just in time for the holiday season. These organizations are invaluable nonprofit community organizations which help build a healthy Santa Clarita Valley by providing to children, adults, and families.
