Midway & North children have new wheels, thanks to Radio Flyer and Cradles 2 Crayons

We’re all staying inside, but Radio Flyer is helping our kids get moving! Longtime community partner Cradles 2 Crayons arranged for a generous donation of Radio flyer wagons, scooters and tricycles.

Special thank you to furniture delivery company Schlep, which donated its time and equipment to drop off the items – about 140 sets of wheels to families in our Midway and North Centers’ Early Learning programs.

(Read more about Schlep’s shift from furniture to hauling food and other supplies in Crain’s Chicago Business.)

Once our families received their wagons, scooters, and tricycles, the fun really started – parents (and their small assistants) put everything together, so the little ones can enjoy!

Aden’s mom shares that Aden likes his pre-bike glider so much, but is not really good on riding it yet as he still has to practice his balance – which this bike will help him with.

Abdul’s mom shares, “I wanted to express my gratitude to your wonderful and generous donor. Abdul loves his new Cyclone.”
