Boise Bicycle Project Receives Funds from R&R BBQ Grand Opening in Boise
50% of proceeds funding the Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway Program this year
By: Firetalker PR
The funds graciously donated by R&R BBQ will be rolling into the annual Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway program. Some days it is hard to decide what to do next, how to feel better. Helping others and putting smiles on the faces of kids make everyone feel better! The giveaway is for children ages 2-11. Funds and volunteers are always needed. This year, the giveaway will be held on December 18, 2021.
"When I was a child, riding a bike was one of the best things in the world. We are glad to be able to provide funds to help make the Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway happen," said Neil Harfert, president of R&R BBQ. "We are proud to bring R&R BBQ to downtown Boise, making this our second restaurant in Idaho, and we look forward to helping the hungry over the holidays this year too."
Children are referred to the Boise Bicycle Project (BBP) for the giveaway by local non-profit organizations, schools, social workers, after-school programs, and other like-minded organizations. BBP will begin accepting referrals for the Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway in October. If you would like to be involved, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org .
"I'm so impressed by R&R BBQ's approach to supporting the local communities in their restaurant markets. Our community is stronger because partners like R&R choose to give back. On December 18th, Boise Bicycle Project will give between 400 to 500 bikes to kids from all around our community at our annual Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway," said Emily Summerhays, Boise Bicycle Project Development Director. "When R&R chose BBP to benefit from their opening weekend proceeds, they may not have known how many kids they'd be directly impacting on the day of our giveaway. Thanks to these funds, hundreds of kids will find new freedom and opportunities on their bikes."
