As part of The Salvation Army’s Angel Giving Tree program, more than 150 volunteers in Oklahoma City assembled a record 658 bikes for local children in need!

The ‘Bucks for Bikes’ program, which began in 2006 with just 44 bikes, raised $26,000 to purchase the bikes directly from Huffy’s California plant. Very impressive, Oklahoma City! What a great community of volunteers!  See more photos.

The Salvation Army’s Angel Giving Tree program provides Christmas presents for disadvantaged children and seniors in need through the generosity of adopters such as you! Bikes are a common request on the wish lists of enrolled children.

Along with toys such as these, many parents who sign up for the program request the basics for their children: clothing, shoes and socks. With the newest Angel Giving Tree Online system, it’s extremely easy for you to help a family who is struggling to provide both the basics and the fun stuff this Christmas season. The online process even gives you the option of customizing the age, gender and location of your angel.

To help an angel in your area, please visit jcpenney’s Angel Giving Tree Online site at www.jcp.com/angel or simply click here to get started.

Hurry! The adoptions end December 13.
