Farewell to 2023

As we say farewell to another remarkable year, we find ourselves reflecting on the incredible journey we’ve embarked on together. 

We want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you who has contributed to our cause. Your unwavering support, dedication, and passion have been the driving force behind the positive changes we’ve been able to achieve in the past twelve months.

Together we’ve been able to increase our student reach — with almost 40% more classes this year!  We have served 71 different groups of children and teens through Earn-A-Bike, Learn-To-Ride and Earn-A-Computer. With 23 of these free, in-depth courses taking place at partner locations, BWorks made important new connections in numerous neighborhoods around the bi-state region. 

These successes are not just statistics; they represent enriched lives, strengthened communities, and brighter futures. We continue to be dedicated to not only reaching more of our fellow citizens but also deepening our engagement to create enduring positive change. 

I continue to be impressed by our amazing volunteers and staff who daily go above and beyond for our families, be it providing more practice outside of class time, building adaptive equipment for kids with unique challenges, refining and expanding our curricula and more.

As we grow, maintaining our core values that define us becomes paramount. Growth should be a means to amplify our impact, not dilute the essence of who we are.  Preserving the spirit of inclusivity, transparency, and accountability that has been the foundation of BWorks is essential as we navigate the path forward. 

The coming year holds exciting possibilities, and we are confident that, with your continued support, we will reach even greater heights.

Thank you for being an integral part of our BWorks family. Together, we are making a real and lasting difference in St. Louis and the world.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Patrick
