Dominion Lending Centres aiming to provide 2,500 bicycles for underprivileged Canadian children this holiday season
Dominion Lending Centres is proud to announce the return of its flagship philanthropic program for the third annual year, Bikes for Kids, which seeks to provide underprivileged Canadian children with their first bicycles, helmets and locks to celebrate the holiday season. Since 2014, Bikes for Kids has collected more than 2,500 bicycles from generous Canadians and has donated them to different communities coast to coast, and this year, DLC is looking to match the total donations of the past two years with an additional 2,500 bicycles donated.
“Bikes for Kids is one of the most important campaigns that DLC does every year,” says Gary Mauris, President and CEO of Dominion Lending Centres. “Canadians have given us so much support over the past two years that we feel we need to go bigger with our efforts in the hopes of providing every Canadian child with the freedom and responsibility of their own bikes.”
This year, Bikes for Kids will be holding events in seven communities across Canada: Vancouver, Montreal (both December 13th), Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, and for the first time ever, Regina, Saskatchewan (rest December 8th). Each event will begin at 7:00 AM local time.
Thanks to partners like Wal-Mart Canada, AMJ Campbell, CORUS Entertainment and Runners Crafted Bikes as well as Fire Fighters in cities across Canada, with your donation, bicycles will be delivered to children in need near your community in time for the holiday season.
In order to ensure delivery to kids before Christmas morning, bicycles can be purchased online between now and November 14th, 2016. Donors are encouraged to donate a bike online at www.bikesforkids.com or to drop off a new bike at any DLC location.
