Love Gives Wheels Sets Goal Of 500 Bikes For Needy Children With Bike Drive

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Love Gives Wheels, led by Dynamic Church in Chattanooga, will host an event to bring awareness to a largely unmet need in our city by hosting a 36-hour bike donation drive on Dec. 6-7. 

Dynamic Church is committed to do something a little unconventional in efforts to deliver hundreds of Christmas dreams this Christmas Season through the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. Staff members from the church along with various community leaders and local celebrities will live in a 40- foot lift throughout the duration of the event in an effort to raise awareness. Meeting this year's goal of 500 bikes would aid in allowing the Salvation Army to provide a bike for every child who requests one through the Angel Tree Program.


This event is designed for the entire family. Throughout the weekend, families are invited to participate in multiple festival type activities including a mobile video game trailer, balloon artist, and a visit by Santa Claus himself. Visit LoveGivesWheels.com for a complete activity schedule.  


The Love Gives Wheels Event is schedule to begin Friday, Dec. 6, at 5 a.m. and end Saturday, Dec. 7, at 5 p.m. The event will be hosted at the Walmart at 2020 Gunbarrel Road in Chattanooga.


The purchasing price of a bike is $50. You can participate at the event or by giving online at LoveGivesWheels.com.


Dynamic Church invites you to celebrate Christmas with them during their 10 a.m. worship experience on Sunday, Dec. 22, at The Hamilton Family YMCA.
