Community Comes Together to Pay it Forward

June 29, 2016

Wayne Kuharski, a Bristol resident, took to the closed Facebook group, Bristol Talks on June 24th to help a young boy who couldn’t afford a bike after it was stolen. He never imagined that his post would unite the community. He shared with WFSB ““I thought maybe 10 to 12 people would write back to me, and we’re looking at 700 Likes and 20-30 bikes were offered,” Kuharski said. Check out how Kuharski brought the community together in the WFSB clip below:

Thank you Wayne and the Bristol community for coming together to make a difference in this young boys life. #BristolisAllHeart
