Along with “Read to Ride”, Winks helped introduce the “Wheels” program.
The Wheels Program is a collaboration between U.P. KIDS and the Copper Country Intermediate School District (ISD). UP KIDS recruits individuals, banks, car dealerships and other businesses to donate used vehicles. Automotive students in the ISD Career & Technology Education Center perform repairs and safety checks. UP KIDS gives the reconditioned vehicles to families in need for very nominal fees such as the costs associated with the parts for repairs and title transfers.
