FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Parents banded together to help their kids who are getting bullied at school.
Parents across the Summit City came out to the United Motorcycle Enthusiasts Love and Support event. The group of men aimed to help kids who say they have been bullied.
“Everybody can do something,” Brent Warfield, Director of United Motorcycle Enthusiasts said. “You don’t have to be a biker. You don’t even have to have a kid. You just got to care about children and you can step up and do something.”
We met with a parent from the event and she said her daughter has been bullied for the past two years.
She said her daughter has been hit in the face and had peanut butter smeared on her daughter’s clothes.
“It hurts to know that my child is supposed to feel safe when she goes to school and she’s not,” Renee Andrews, a parent said.
The mother said this happens frequently on her daughter’s bus ride going home from school.
“I got scared for her,” Andrews said. “Not only does she not feel safe, but she isn’t physically safe.”
The mother told us she has reported the issues to school administration at Arlington Elementary School multiple times.
She said her daughter is still getting bullied.
The mother said she reached out to the United Motorcycle Enthusiasts after she faced many road blocks.
She said the group of men are helping to change her daughter’s life.
We spoke with a school official from the Fort Wayne Community School system. She said they take situations like this very seriously. They are happy to see community members are stepping up to help their kids, according to school authorities.
