Laird Helps Underprivileged Children Dreams Come True

Laird donates free bicycles and helmets to 50 Students in the greater Los Angeles Area

Global technology leader Laird (LRD: London) announces today that it has donated 50 bicycles to underprivileged children in the Lost Angeles area.

The unsuspecting students, ages 8 to 14, were brought straight from school to a location where Laird employees were waiting to surprise them with the bicycles. For many this is the first bicycle they’ve ever had, and they immediately strapped on their new helmets to go for a ride.

Laird managers spent the afternoon assembling the bicycles while in town for their annual management conference. L.A. based Best Corporate Events helped organize the festivities.

“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is an essential part of our culture at Laird,” explains Laird’s Chief Executive Officer, David Lockwood.

“Students are the next generation of engineers and innovators on which our company is built. Our managers were almost as excited to build the bikes as the students were to receive them,” says Laird’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Carolyn Koenig. She

The students are all members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Venice.
