Goodwill/Rotary seek bikes for needy families

The 20th Annual Robikes Program, coordinated by the Rotary Club of Richmond and Goodwill Industries to benefit Sgt. Santa, will run through Dec. 8. The name Sgt. Santa has been synonymous with helping needy families in the greater Richmond area.

The Robikes Program collects bicycles in working condition, as well as those in need of repair. Rotarians meet on five Saturday mornings to repair the bikes and distribute them to families during the holiday season. The organizations will provide hundreds of bicycles for Sgt. Santa to give to children who would otherwise not receive them.

Bicycles are being accepted at the Goodwill stores at 8535 Midlothian Tnpk. and 11749 Hull Street Rd. For other Goodwill locations, call 745-6300 or visit
