Once again Greater Grace Temple is really stepping forward to help get more Detroit kids on bikes. With the help of Happy’s Pizza, Detroit Lion Joique Bell, and Tigers mascot PAWS, they’re giving away 150 bicycles “to children from financially struggling families.”
The bicycle giveaway is this Sunday after church service. The families in need have already been selected.
This giveaway has done on for many years now. Greater Grace Temple has given out over 2,500 bicycles.
“For many people, one of their fondest childhood memories was receiving a brand new bicycle on Christmas morning,” says Greater Grace Temple’s Senior Pastor Bishop Charles H. Ellis III. “We want to do something to help those families that have been hit hard by this economy.”
Last year Greater Grace Temple also hosted a walking audit with the Michigan AARP and Dan Burden. They’re not only giving away bikes, but supportive of making the neighborhood a better place to walk and bike.
