Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop is a proud partner with Mix 94.7 and the JB & Sandy Morning Show for a fifth year to provide bicycles to needy Central Texas children through the 16th Annual Bikes For Kids campaign.
Mellow Johnny’s turned into Santa's Workshop and recruited a large number of volunteers to participate in “build parties” where over hundreds of Trek bicycles have been assembled, tested, and ready to be given to children and families who are nominated based on need and merit. "On behalf of Mellow Johnny's, we would like to give heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers who helped this year. We finished two weeks ahead of schedule and couldn't have asked for better volunteers". said Mellow Johnny's marketing director, Lauren Ziedonis.
“Receiving your first bike is a special memory that stays with you well into adulthood, one that every child should have the opportunity to experience,” said Mellow Johnny’s general manager,
Craig Staley. “This event provides that experience, and we feel more fortunate than ever to be involved with such a rewarding community event.”
Donations have been raised by individuals as well as corporate sponsors. A donation of $150 will provide a child with a bicycle, lock and helmet.
The giveaway will take place on Saturday, December 15th 7am-10am at Mellow Johnny’s, which is located at the corner of 4th and Nueces Street. The JB & Sandy Morning show will be broadcasting live from
