Alexander, a New American from Congo, is the second recipient of a new bicycle donation!
Alexander came to the United States in June 2012. He is still waiting to be reunited with his wife and two children, who are waiting in Tanzania until they can join him.
The new bike was given to Alexander by CFNA through the generosity of Chris Shearman, owner of the Gelateria del Leone located at 3197 South Grand Blvd. Chris donates $3.00 from the sale of every bag of the Gelateria’s specially roasted coffee. When a sufficient amount has been accumulated, he purchases a bike, complete with helmet and lock, and makes it available to CFNA. From the many who visit the Peace center, Rev. Adefris Mekasha selects a recently arrived family badly in need of help with transportation, and gives it to them.
