A relationship with a dream set of wheels begins long before you slip behind the driver’s seat of your first car. It begins with your first bike.
Nine years ago, we began the Bikes For Tykes program as a way to help provide needy children living throughout the Philadelphia area with their first bicycle. Donors from all over the area bring in gently used bicycles that have been outgrown by their owners, but certainly have many more miles to ride. To really add to the spirit of giving, our Sussman employees then turn into elves – refurbishing the bikes to be presented to their next owner.
This year, over 100 bikes were distributed to area children, bringing our grand total from the past 9 years to over 1,800. That’s 1,800 smiling children who have been able to experience the delight, adventures and freedom that come with having a bike. All from the incredible generosity of our Sussman customers and our employees.
Thank you again, and we’re already looking forward to this year’s Bikes for Tykes event!
