The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary Raising Funds To Purchase Bicycles For Needy Children At Christmas

Posted: Updated:

You may be thinking about firecrackers, but there is a group of “elves” thinking about Christmas.

Beginning July 1, the Women's Auxiliary of The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command will distribute over 100 counter top Red Kettles to area businesses to collect donations for the Buck$ 4 Bikes program.

The Buck$ 4 Bikes program was founded in 2006 to help families in need at Christmas. In 2016, 1,535 children wished for a bike and 1,535 received one which is a first for this program. 

The 2017 Buck$ 4 Bikes program goal is 1,550 bikes for needy boys and girls. Every penny donated to this cause will go to the purchase of a new Huffy bicycle with prices ranging from $34 to $52.

Sparklers in July are temporary. Sparkles in a child's eyes on Christmas last forever. Help us make a child's wish come true.

To donate funds to purchase a bike, visit one of the area businesses below during the month of July.

Donations can also be made by mailing a check to:
