Radio station retiring Bikes for Tykes program

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

After 15 years and more than 17,000 bikes distributed to Franklin, Henry and Patrick counties and the City of Martinsville through our Bikes for Tykes program, Super Country 99.9 WZBB-FM has decided to retire Bikes for Tykes.

We would like to thank all our listeners who contributed to the program's success and especially to those who have spent countless hours and contributed thousands of dollars to ensure kids win South Central Virginia could enjoy a Merry Christmas.

While we are stepping back from Bikes for Tykes, we would like to step forward and help other charities, civic organizations and church groups with their Christmas giving campaigns.

We will offer our support to all of those working to help their friends and neighbors in need during the holidays.

Some of those who have worked on Bikes for Tykes in the past may want to continue to collect bikes for distribution by the Salvation Army, We Care, Christmas Cheer, Goodwill and others.

Some of our past supporters may want to channel their giving through these and other organizations to help Toys for Tots, various angel tree programs, the Martinsville Speedway toy drive, various food banks or clothing drives.

We will promote all these activities with public service announcements, and we invite these groups into the studio to talk about their activities and give updates on the progress toward meeting their goals.
