Bikes for Tykes Success
We teamed up with KMOX , Toys for tots and many other community partners to collect toys, bikes, & helmets for the 2nd Annual Bikes for Tykes event. Our office has been collecting & making donations leading up to the drive/assembling event on Friday.
The 48-hour Bikes for Tykes drive took place on Friday, December 14th until Sunday, December 16th in the Gravois Bluffs parking lot in Fenton, MO. We even had some employees volunteer to help assemble the new bikes that were donated to the program & we couldn't be happier about the results.
All of the bikes & toys collected will be going to children of all ages and then provide them for distribution throughout the St. Louis Metro area in Missouri and Illinois.
Check out some early results of the event:
Over 1,850 bikes for kids, aged toddler to 18 (vs 748 in 2017)
More than 1,600 helmets (vs 350 in 2017)
Over $75,000 in Partner raised funds from donors and employees of great St. Louis companies! ($15k in 2017)
Dozens of Community Volunteers throughout the weekend, helping to assemble
All of this filled 1x 53’ trailer with Toys and Helmets, 2 x 53’ trailers with bikes and a 26’ box truck with 6 additional pallets of boxed bikes, stacked to the ceiling
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS!
