OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The Salvation Army of Central Oklahoma Women’s Auxiliary is kicking off their 14th annual Buck$ 4 Bikes fundraiser in July for Cleveland and Oklahoma counties in anticipation of Christmas.

Beginning July 1, over 100 counter top red kettles will be distributed to area businesses to collect donations. The Buck$ 4 Bikes program was founded in 2006 to help families in need at Christmas. “In 2018, 1,403 children wished for a bike and 1,403 received one thanks to the generosity of Central Oklahomans,” said Major Susan Ellis, area commander. “It is so heartwarming to see the outpouring of support from the community whether it be donating funds or helping to assemble over 1,000 bikes at Christmas.”

The Buck$ 4 Bikes program raises funds to purchase bikes in support of The Salvation Army of Central Oklahoma’s Angel Tree program. Every penny donated to this cause will go to the purchase of a new Huffy bicycle with prices ranging from $37 to $62. “This annual fundraiser is more than just raising funds for bicycles,” said D’Anna Pulliam, Buck$ 4 Bikes committee chair. “It is about making a child’s Christmas wish come true. I am also extremely pleased that FedEx has confirmed free delivery once again this year of bicycles and our friends at Oklahoma Bicycle Society will be providing a new helmet for each bike purchased.”
