VIDEO: American Gas Association Builds Bikes for ChildrenPosted:
CAMDEN - From delivering essential energy to millions of Americans to building bikes, natural gas companies are continuously serving communities.
On Wednesday, Camden Aquarium employees from the American Gas Association, PSE & G and other natural gas companies, built bicycles for children in need.
Thirty well-deserving children between the ages of 7-10 years old, received their energy saving gift as a surprise.
"A lot of the children that we pick, you know, sometimes it's one of the first bikes they've had and so it's a great heartwarming activity," said Dave McCurdy, President & CEO of American Gas Association.
"This is one of the most enjoyable things that you can ever do when you put these bikes together and give them out to the kids, you just see smiles and happiness and it's just a great event," said Joseph Forline, VP of Gas Operation at PSE & G.
The bicycles offer a sense of freedom for the kids, but with the hope informing importance of natural gas.
AGA purchased the bikes and helmets from "Bikes for Goodness Sake", while locks were donated by Cooper's Ferry Partnership.
