NORTHAMPTON — Clinical & Support Options (CSO) recently partnered with Webber & Grinnell Insurance in Northampton and Joe’s Garage in Haydenville to coordinate a Buy a Bike drive to benefit the CSO All-Stars afterschool program located in Florence.
A dozen bikes and helmets were purchased, thanks to underwriting by many sponsors, including Webber & Grinnell Insurance, Philadelphia Companies Insurance, Goggins Real Estate, Lashway Lumber, Lockwood Trucking, Dr. Jonathan Bayuk, and author Kathleen Pellegrino.
CSO All Stars is a therapeutic afterschool program to support youth in learning life skills and developing new areas through creative interactions focused on building strength and skills with community- and center-based activities. Sites are located in Florence, Greenfield, and Athol. The program is headquartered at 34 North Maple Street in Florence. This particular drive was designed to encourage physical activity and exercise for the All-Star participants and allow them access to use the community resources available in Florence.
