Carolyn’s note: I’ve been helping publicize this worthy event for several years now, starting when I was with the Tucsoncitizen.com.  Please call in to the radio show this Thursday and Friday to help donate $ to purchase these bikes.  I was there last year to witness the give-away on a very wet day in December, but kids and their families stood patiently in line for a long time in the rain to get their valuable bikes.
