Santa's Bikes for Kids

This entry was posted on December 12, 2014 by admin

Every year Winter® Equipment works with The Salvation Army to provide bicycles and donations to children and families around Lake County, Ohio. “Santa’s Bikes for Kids” is a fundraiser that was organized by Winter® Equipment owner Kent Winter. He is heavily involved in charities around the area and this one continues to be a great success. 2014 marks the 7th annual campaign to help those struggling during the holiday season.

Donations started being accepted at the beginning of October and within this timeframe, has already collected 109 bikes and $5,000 in donations. This number is growing every day towards the goal of $8,000! These donations go directly to The Salvation Army in Lake County and will be distributed by the Painesville location.

There were (and still are!) multiple ways to donate, whether it be directly through Winter® Equipment, The Salvation Army, or with the chinese raffle.

From 11am-1pm Monday through Wednesday next week, the auctions will be held at Winter® Equipment, located at 1900 Joseph Lloyd Parkway in Willoughby. Ticket prices are 3 for $1. The drawing will be held at 9am on Thursday, December 18th.
