WATERVILLE — Each year, the South End Neighborhood Association and the South End Teen Center work collaboratively to hold a bike swap in early May. This event, held in the South End of the city, helps provide youth of all ages with new or almost new bicycles, according to a SENA new release.

Organizers agree that every child deserves to have a bike, to be able to visit friends, to get exercise, practice healthy lifestyle choices and learn responsibility of ownership. Helmets are given out and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine provides safety training.

If you have a nearly new bike of any size you no longer need, SENA and the South End Teen Center could use it for the 2015 swap. Other donations would also be appreciated. Both can be dropped off at the Teen Center, 5 Libby Court on weekdays.
