If you have a like-new bike that you would like to donate to the Rotary Club of Lake Stevens, you can bring them to Haggen’s parking lot on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This is the 10th anniversary of Bikes for Tykes. In the past two years, the Rotary Club of Lake Stevens has distributed over 375 bikes to worthy families. There will be signs in the parking lot directing contributors to the drop off area.

Anyone wishing to donate cash to the Rotary Club for the Bikes for Tykes can send them to the Club at P.O. Box 908, Lake Stevens, Wash. 98258 or by going to the link below that will take you to a donate button which is linked to PayPal.

The Rotary Club of Lake Stevens works closely with the Food Bank who identifies children in the community whose families cannot afford a new or slightly used bicycle. This is the 10th year that the Club has sponsored the Bikes for Tykes program.

Funds are raised through the Rotary Club budget, local individual and business donations and donations from Rotary Club members. In the past, individuals have donated their like new bikes to the club for distribution to these families as well.

The bikes will be distributed on Saturday, Dec. 17 at Ebenezer Lutheran Church from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Club members agree and have stated, “shouldn’t every young child get a Bike for Christmas”?
