Moody’s Bikes for U.S. Military Families

The Moody’s Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Moody’s Corporation (MCO), hosted a “Bike Build” event Thursday that donated over 50 children’s bicycles built by Moody’s employees to the families of U.S. service members.

The event was held in partnership with the USO of Metropolitan New York, a nonprofit organization focused on lifting the spirits of America’s troops and their families.

Over 60 Moody’s employees volunteered their time throughout the day to help assemble and test bikes as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to community service.

Last year, Moody’s employees worldwide donated over 8,800 volunteer service hours through Moody’s Foundation sponsored projects in their communities.

“I am thrilled that so many of our employees have stepped forward to show their support in such a tangible way for military families,” said Linda S. Huber, executive VP of Moody’s Corporation and a former captain in the U.S. Army.

The Bike Build initiative began in response to service members explaining that the best way to help them is to help their families. Nearly 20 military families from across the New York City area attended the event, which included Army National Guard soldiers and their families.
