Thank you Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 598, Ki-Be High School, Richland High, Tri-Tech, and the rest of the volunteers who put together 1,300 Bikes for Tykes in three hours last Friday. Since then, they've provided 400 more bikes.
This program was started four years ago with 100 bikes, 2nd year 500 bikes, last year 1,168, and this year more than 1,700. Local 598 and donations made this possible. The bikes are given to the Marines and other charities for distribution. The cardboard the bikes come in is donated to the Shriners, who sell it for fuel money to transport children and their families to the Shriners Hospital.
