Do Guardian Scholars Need Help?

Thanks for your lovely article on bikes for Guardian Scholars. What a lovely gift — in so many ways — to the ruined bikes, to the now graciously mobile students, to the beauty of the campus: seeing these now-happy students sailing around on their bikes.

The one thing I missed is, how can all we who would like to make more of this magic happen contribute or participate? Maybe I missed the secret code, but I was looking for a number or an email address to learn how to further foster this beautiful undertaking. It would be lovely if you would provide it.

Editor’s Note: Lisa Przekop, who heads the program, can be contacted at The Guardian Scholar website has further information on helping, a wish list, and donations to the scholarship and emergency funds.
