Effort now underway for Miracle Bikes for Kids

-A A +A

It’s that time of year again when we celebrate by giving to others. Gonzie’s Miracle Bikes for Kids is once again soliciting your help and support in providing bicycles to less fortunate children in our community.

In 2012, with your help, Gonzie’s Miracle Bikes for Kids was able to provide bikes to 47 children – 32 boys and 15 girls.

Once again, we are asking you to support our efforts as we continue with this ministry. If you would like to donate bikes (old or new), please use the following drop-off sites:

u Lancaster Fire Department, Arch Street Office (Station 1) and the University Station (Station 2)

u Lancaster City Police Department, Arch Street

u Gonzie and Sons Assembly Shop, 1777 Great Falls Highway

u Boss Platinum Car Wash, 1791 Great Falls Highway

Drop-off times are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We will also pick up donated bike (s). Drop-offs and pick-ups started Monday, Nov. 25, and continue through Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Donations are also welcome. Donated money is used to buy parts for the refurbished bikes.

Christmas is the season for giving. With your continued support, Gonzie’s Miracle Bikes for Kids hopes to provide even more bicycles to kids during this holiday season.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My telephone number is (803) 287-3556 or my email is hmw1745@comporium.net.

Thank you in advance for demonstrating the Christmas spirit.
