Las Vegas Firefighters Benefit Association Annual “Adopt-A-Bike” Program
Program Has Provided More Than 1,900 Bikes For Kids

 

Once again the Las Vegas Firefighter's Benefit Association has officially kick-off its  annual “Adopt-A-Bike” program. 

This will be the 11th  year that members of the Las Vegas Firefighter's Benefit Association have received donated bikes, repaired them and donated them to various charities such as the Urban League of Las Vegas. The organizations then distribute them during the holidays to children whose families could not afford a bike. The repairs on the bikes are done by firefighters. The funding for the parts is also donated by the Las Vegas Firefighter's Benefit Association.

If anyone would like to donate a gently used or new bike for the program, they can drop the bike off at any city of Las Vegas fire station.  For fire station locations please call 383-2888.           

In the past 10 years, more than 1,900 donated bikes have been given away by firefighters.
