17th Annual Wheels for Kids Bike Giveaway Brings Christmas Early to Reeve’s Terrace Children
This Friday, December 21, 2018 Santa Claus will join City of Orlando District 4 Commissioner Patty Sheehan, the Orlando Fire Department, Orlando Police Department motors and mounted patrols and community partners to help giveaway nearly 90 bikes to children, ages five to 15, who live in the Reeves Terrace neighborhood.
The event is part of the Wheels for Kids program, started by Commissioner Sheehan in 2002 when students in Reeves Terrace no longer had a bus system to take them to school.
To date, the program has given away more than 1100 bicycles thanks to generous supporters.
This year’s bikes were made possible thanks to donations for Baker Barrios Architects, Brassfield & Gorie, GAI Consultants, Inc. & the Ustler Group of Companies and were assembled by City of Orlando Firefighters.
