In 1992, STAP donated two tricycles from a photo shoot to an agency serving at-risk families. Since then, we have marked the holiday season by assembling and donating tricycles in our clients’ names to charities in the communities we serve.


“This really is one of the highlights of our year. It’s an opportunity to pay tribute to our clients while helping people who really need it. To us, it’s so much better than any other gift we could offer,” said John Stap.

With help from clients, relatives, and friends, agency staffers assembled over 100 bright red trikes, pushing our twenty-first year grand total over the 4,500 mark. Trikes were donated to two Kalamazoo organizations: Family & Children Services and Elizabeth Upjohn Community Healing Center.
