Highlands, NJ – Family & Children’s Service (FCS), Monmouth County’s oldest nonprofit social service agency providing compassionate care, intervention and education to people during challenging times, will present 20 new children’s bicycles to students at Highlands Elementary School next Tuesday, April 28th as part of the agency’s ongoing effort to engage children in a healthy lifestyle.

The donated bikes were purchased and assembled by employees of Wells Fargo Advisors, Central Jersey Region and their banking partners during a recent quarterly sales meeting. They will be distributed to select students, many of whom are enrolled in FCS’s two in-school volunteer led programs at Highlands Elementary; Healthy Buddies and Reading Buddies.

In addition, the Highlands Business Partnership (HBP) is donating 20 bicycle helmets to accompany the bikes.

Dr. Susan Compton, Highlands Superintendent of Schools, Highlands Elementary School Principal Rosemary Schutz and representatives from the Borough of Highlands, The Highlands Business Partnership (HBP) and Wells Fargo Advisors will be on hand for the event.
