Day 12 – Bikes for Tykes
Do you remember how excited you were as a kid to receive a new bike? Every year Realities For Children collects, cleans, safety-checks, and refurbishes gently used bikes donated by the community, and then gives them to children in need. These are the kind of gifts that can make a huge impact in the life of a struggling child. For our 25 Days of Giving event our team held a bike drive through which we were able to collect 10 new helmets and 5 children’s bikes for Realities for Children, as well as 5 adult bikes that will be donated to a local homeless rescue mission.
Realities For Children provides a support system for children who have suffered from neglect, abuse, and at-risk situations. For more information about them and their Bikes for Tykes program, visit www.realitiesforchildren.com.
