Bikes for Kids is a community outreach that was started in 2006. As the Faith Christian Outreach leadership team was seeking a way to reach out to the community, we decided to focus our outreach on children. From this dream, Bikes for Kids began as a grass roots effort. Throughout the past six years, Bikes for Kids has grown exponentially. We have given away 4,220 bikes to date.
Each year, our leadership team sends out over 9,500 bike nomination forms to area schools. As the schools distribute the forms, children in need of a bike may be nominated by their parents, friends, or school personnel by completing and returning the nomination form. After the forms are received, they are each reviewed by our leadership team and through the effort of many dedicated volunteers, the kids are awarded a bike that they receive at the annual bikes for kids celebration held the Saturday before Christmas at the Shawnee Expo Center where they are greeted by a host of volunteers and treated to a milk and homemade Christmas cookies.
