Join SPE GCS Young Professionals at the 2010 Elves and More Bike Build. Elves and More assembles and distributes bicycles to impoverished and at-risk youth in the Greater Houston Area, and has already distributed more than 100,000 bicycles to Houston Children. The SPE GCS volunteers will participate in the December 15 bike build from 5pm-8pm at Reliant Center. There is a $20 donation requirement for each volunteer that will be subsidized by SPE. SPE will also provide dinner following the bike build. All that you need to bring is your holiday spirit and we will provide everything else!

"Elves & More is dedicated to "changing lives-one bike at a time!" We focus on at-risk children living in Greater Houston, an eight-county area in which 330,000 children live in poverty. A few years ago, we made an important discovery. We learned that by giving bicycles to impoverished children we could dramatically change their lives by helping them stay in school and out of trouble while improving their health. Using bicycles as tools, Elves & More helps children stay in school all the way to graduation, and helps children stay out of harm's way along their journey."
