The Brevard Sheriff’s Office will be donating bicycles, helmets and locks to children assigned to the GAL program. They have contacted our nonprofit, Friends of Children, to put together a list of children in need who would benefit from a bicycle. Each child receiving a bicycle must be present and receive his/her bicycle in person on December 9(time to be announced) and they must have a way to transport it. No one cannot pick up the bicycles without the child present.
The giveaway will happen on Saturday, December 9 (time to be announced) at the Brevard County Sheriff’s Work Farm (2955 Pluckbaum Dr., Cocoa). The sheriff will have stations set up for sign-in, proper fitting of helmets, and instructions for the kids on basic bike maintenance. Please check with caregivers before putting in a request because each child receiving a bicycle must be present to receive his/her bicycle in person and they must have a way to transport it.
At this time, we are not sure how many bikes will be available so getting a bike from the sheriff is not guaranteed, but they will do their best to support our children. Requests must be received by Sunday, November 19.
