Christmas Bike Drive Underway

bike-0Fall is here which means Christmas is right around the corner. Each year, thanks to the support of generous sponsors and donors, bicycles are given to needy children on the Peninsula. Now in its 22nd year, the shiny new bikes continue to bring joy and happiness to many children. There have been changes throughout the years to make the drive more efficient and effective, but the generosity of donors was always constant. Thousands of dollars have been raised to provide hundreds of bikes, and happy hearts for our local kids.

The Annual Christmas Bike Drive started in 1999 when peninsula resident Jack Harmon hopped from bar to bar collecting money to purchase bicycles for kids on the peninsula. He partnered with Constable Doug Considine to deliver the bikes just before Christmas. The program was a hit! After many years of being handled by the Constable’s Office, the program was turned over to Texas Crab Festival Charities. Thousands of dollars have been raised to provide hundreds of bikes, and happy hearts for our local kids.

Texas Crab Festival Charities is accepting donations to continue The Annual Christmas Bike Drive. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and because TCFC is a non-profit organization, donations are tax deductible. Please share this with family, friends, and businesses.

Donations can be mailed to: Texas Crab Fest Charities, PO Box 2002, Crystal Beach, TX 77650. (With your donation, please note that it is for bikes). This program has brought smiles to children’s faces throughout the years and we need your help for it to continue!
