Providing Bikes to Under-Privileged Children

“Lugo Charities Inc. and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge 385 is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the 11th Annual “Bike In A Box” Christmas event on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm at the Elk’s Lodge 385 that is located at 1800 North Oracle Road. A special invitation to 500 under-privileged children selected from youth organizations, schools, churches, and children-support agencies in the Greater Tucson area will be attending this special day of giving. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at 10:00 am to greet the children. Each child that has been pre-selected will receive one of five-hundred (500) bicycles that we are planning to give away, along with a safety helmet provided by Tucson Medical Center of the Children’s Miracle Network. The bicycles will remain in the box so that the parents or guardians can, together with the child, assemble the bicycle in promoting the true Christmas spirit and teaching the children the basic assembly and adjustments to their new bike. “
Carolyn’s note:  11 years of Jesse Lugo, with the assistance of radio talk show host John C. Scott,  promoting this effort to provide 500 new bicycles (and helmets) to children in Tucson. Heard them asking for donations on John’s Saturday radio show (2 to 4 p.m.) on KVOI 10AM, on November 23, 2019.  I’m sure they will continue today, so listen in to hear about the generous donations for this worthy project.  Jesse Lugo is pictured above in the center circle of the photo montage.
