On December 17, 2013, 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.

Anyone looking to receive a bike should call this number  574- 5691 and give us the following;

1.  Your name and contact information
2.  Your child or childrens name and age
  You will be notified by DECEMBER 16, 2013 if you have been selected.
IF YOU HAVE WON A BIKE WITHIN THE LAST TWO YEARS, PLEASE GIVE OTHERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO WIN.
