Students from the School’s new freshman class worked together to assemble and donate tricycles for the Overtown Children & Youth Coalition, as part of the School’s Business United Day of Service on September 20.
Freshmen met at the BankUnited Center Fieldhouse on campus to assemble 50 Little Tikes Big Wheel tricycles for children from local organizations including Overtown Youth Center, Lotus House, Touching Miami with Love, and Urgent Inc.
Nearly 30 children from the various organizations also had the opportunity to meet the freshmen, play with their new tricycles, and enjoy a pizza party. This year’s Business United Day was made possible by the The David Ludwig Family Class of 2014.
Business United Day is part of FIRST Step, a required freshman course in which student teams are also paired with area community groups for the entire fall semester. FIRST Step, short for Freshman Integrity, Responsibility and Success through Teamwork, aims to expose students to business ethical principles, teamwork and the challenges that organizations face.
