Christmas Bike Giveaway

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WHO: MOBILE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE

WHAT: CHRISTMAS BIKE GIVEAWAY

WHERE: 5808 US Highway 90 W. suite A

WHEN: December 20, 2012, 10:00 am

On December 20, 2012, The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office will have their Annual Bicycle Giveaway. Each year the MCSO collects about 100 bicycles that are given to children through out the Mobile area. Some non- profit agencies participate as well such as Baptist Children’s home, Wilmer Hall and St. Mary’s.

Donations come through private parties and businesses in Mobile County. Last year the Sheriff’s office donated over 100 Bicycles to needy families in our community.
Donations are accepted and stored at the MCSO Theodore location, 5808 US Highway 90.

More than 700 children have received bicycles in previous years. “The greatest feeling in the world is watching those children pick out their very own bike”, said Richard Cayton, founder of the bicycle giveaway program.

Anyone who wishes to donate to the program should bring new and unused bicycles, toys or gift card donations to the Theodore location. If donating by check, please make payable to Foundation of the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office.
For details, contact Lori Myles, 574-6397 or lmyles@mobileso.com.
