So when the Riders hold their annual toy drive for the Salvation Army, every bicycle they purchase must come with necessary safety equipment—helmets, horns, reflectors, etc. This year’s drive had a not-so-secret Santa, the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, which donated $500 to cover the cost of the safety equipment for the bicycles purchased for this year’s recipients.
“When we heard about the Manomet Mystery Riders toy drive, especially how they buy bicycles for older children and teens as well as the younger ones, we knew it was something we wanted to be involved with,” said John C. Manoog III, attorney and principal of the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III. “As personal injury attorneys, many of the cases we handle could have been avoided had the proper precautions been taken. Riding a bike is no different. Helmets, lights/reflectors and horns go a long way toward preventing accidents and minimizing the impact of spills.”
The Manomet Mystery Riders purchased 15 bicycles for this year’s toy drive, held on Sunday, November 25. The bikes were purchased at Benny’s department store located at 179 Court Street in Plymouth.
“We can’t thank Attorney Manoog enough for his generous donation,” said John Eichinger, treasurer for the Manomet Mystery Riders. “We give a variety of toys as part of our drive but for obvious reasons the bicycles are near and dear to our heart. John’s generous donation will help give a lot of children and teens a much happier holiday.”
Generosity combined with a safety message is nothing new for the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III. The firm recently partnered with Friendly’s and the Barnstable Police Department on a Halloween safety campaign that included passing out reflective lights for younger patrons of Friendly’s to use for trick-or-treating.
“We see too many accidents and unfortunate tragedies happen on account of negligence and just not thinking ahead,” said Manoog. “If there’s an opportunity to prevent something like that from happening, we’re happy to help.
