NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — Foster kids in Louisiana got a very special gift on Thursday, July 22 - a new bike.
Together We Ride is a national non-profit organization which goes around the country bringing the comforts of home to kids without one. The organization stopped at the Methodist Children's home near New Orleans on their nation-wide tour.
The group set up shop and built 25 bicycles for the kids there. They tell NBC33 News it was an amazing experience that taught them how much we take for granted in life.
