The “Rick Case Bikes for Kids” program, celebrating its 38th anniversary this year, has provided more than 125,000 bikes to children during the holidays since 1982 and is now collecting bikes from the community for the 2020 holiday season through Dec. 21, 2020.
This year’s collection goal is set at 6,500 bikes, which will be distributed through area Boys & Girls Clubs and other charities, churches and schools.
The “Rick Case Bikes for Kids” program was launched in 1982 by Rita and Rick Case and the Rick Case Automotive Group in Ohio where they had 14 bicycle stores. They had the idea to ask the community to donate any bike no longer needed and they would redistribute them to deserving children in time for the holidays.
Rita Case, President & CEO, said, “We’ve asked our community to bring in a bike in good condition they no longer needed so it could be donated to children that wouldn’t have an opportunity to own a bicycle. It’s a win-win for everyone. The community would feel philanthropic being able to help a child and the children would be thrilled to have a bike of their own, many for the very first time.”
The program makes it easy to get involved and help a child this holiday season by simply dropping off a bike in good condition at any of the Rick Case South Florida-area locations below. They are open 7 days a week; for hours go to https://rickcase.com/
