Love Gives Wheels Sets Goal Of 500 Bikes For Kids In Need

Thursday, December 05, 2013

Love Gives Wheels, lead by Dynamic Church, will host an event to bring awareness to a largely unmet need in the city by hosting a 36-hour bike donation drive on Friday and Saturday.  

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, officials said. 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 years goal of 500 bikes would aid in allowing the Salvation Army to provide a bike for every child that 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 pictures with popular children’s characters. Visit LoveGivesWheels.com for a complete activity schedule.    

The Love Gives Wheels Event is scheduled to begin Friday at 5 a.m. and end Saturday at 5 p.m. The event will be hosted at the Walmart at 2020 Gunbarrel Road. 

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

Dynamic Church invites the public to celebrate Christmas with them during their 10 a.m. Worship Experience on Sunday, Dec. 22, at the Hamilton Family YMCA.
