On December 2nd, Powers Products Co. hosted a community service and team-building event organized through Wish for Wheels. 19 employees participated to build 35 new bikes through a variety of fun competitions designed to foster teamwork. The group then visited the Cope Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver to donate the bikes and new helmets to 35 very deserving kids. “It was the perfect way to kick off the holiday season,” said Brent Powers, CEO of Powers Products Co. “Wish for Wheels provided us with a fun way to make a big impact on these kids’ lives. Everyone who participated really enjoyed the experience, and we’re already thinking about how we can do more with it next year.”
