In November, a team of Herbalife Nutrition employees volunteered their time to donate and build 60 bicycles for children from YWCA Best Choice Learning Center, a Casa Herbalife Nutrition partner in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Herbalife Nutrition also partnered with community partner, the Bobby Labonte Foundation, to each donate $10,000 to the Casa.

“We value our long-term partnership with the Best Choice Learning Center and look forward to continuing to support their mission to educate and advocate for children in need in Winston-Salem,” said Gene Corbett, Herbalife Vice President of Human Resources. “As we have seen through this event, we were able to make a significant impact on both the center itself and the children they serve.”

The Best Choice Learning Center offers year-round, K-8 academic enrichment and need-based scholarships for children in Forsyth County. Their certified teachers and bilingual staff provide nutrition education, healthy snacks, and hot meals.

Before the children received their bikes, they learned about bike safety and were encouraged to stay healthy and active and always wear their helmets.

“The $20,000 financial gift will enable us to continue to help children, while the bikes will help them stay active,” said Marilyn Odom, Vice president of Youth Services at YWCA of Winston-Salem. “We’ve also learned the importance of bike safety, and we are so happy about all of it.”
