The Newton County Sheriff’s Office partnered with the Washington Street Community Center to participate in Newton County’s first Build-A-Bike event sponsored by Golden State Foods (GSF) Foundation on May 16, 2015.

GSF Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and families in need in the areas where GSF associates live and work.

The Build-A-Bike program includes a 1 hour instruction about safety, goal setting and the value of hard work that was facilitated by NCSO. The program is designed to help a child develop his or her sense of self-reliance, adventure, strength and character. The success of the Build-A-Bike program is due in large part to the partnerships and the support of local bike shops and law enforcement that act as a resource for future tune-ups and safety lessons.

Over 40 bikes were built, with the help of GSF volunteers, parents of the children, NCSO staff and the Washington Street Community Center staff. GSF participated in building more than 1,000 bikes this year. The effort was driven by a common purpose to provide deserving school-aged children from the Newton County community with their own, and often first bikes.

The children and parents were escorted on a bike trail from the Washington Street Community Center to the Newton County Courthouse Square by NCSO and the Covington Police Department. NCSO is proud to partner with GSF.

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosted the Choices & Reality program on April 25 with the goal of bringing to light driving hazards and how they affect an individual’s life. Along with NCSO, speakers from Arrendale Correctional Institute, Atlanta Transitional Center, the Newton County Detention Center and Covington Ford spoke on a variety of topics.

“Topics ranged from drinking and driving, substance abuse, texting and driving, seatbelt use to everyday choices and the effect they can have on your life,” said Covington Ford vice president Matt Crowe.
