In an effort to support local children throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic Project; Life’s Journey (http://projectlifesjourney.org/) will raise funds to provide at least 200 families with Distance Learning Boxes. Each Distance Learning Support Box costs $55 and will include an abundance of educational and emotional resources for children ages 5-8. We are hosting a Bike Ride to cover the cost of the Distance Learning Support Boxes.

Contents of Distance Learning Support Boxes

Educational resources include: Sight Word Flash Cards, Crayons, Pencils, Pencil Sharpener, Glue Stick, scissors, composition notebook, eraser, a ruler, and an academic workbook.

Emotional resources include: Mood chart magnet, stress ball, multiple books on topics related to anger, friendship, black history, global warming, yoga, and mindfulness, jump rope, yo-yo, bubbles and affirmation cards.


About the Bike Ride

Proceeds from the bike ride registrations and online donations will be contributed to the creation of the Distance Learning Boxes to be distributed to identified Norfolk Public School children whose education continues to be impacted by COVID-19 pandemic. Registration is $55 for adults and free for children ages 16 and under. Beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the day, participants will meet at Harbor Park and complete a five- or fifteen-mile bike ride continually abiding by the state guidelines for safe social distancing.
