Remington volunteers prep 116 bicycles for children
We’re blessed with wonderful people around here. Hats off to everybody who contributed and helped.
— RVFRD President Steve Wright
The Remington Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department’s annual bicycle drive for Christmas has grown dramatically.
The volunteers — including Bealeton-Remington Ruritan Club members and local citizens — on Sunday assembled 116 new bikes that will get donated to Fauquier Toys for Tots on Dec. 8.
The firefighter/medics started their bicycle drive in 2017, when they donated 24. Last year, the total rose to 54.
“This year (Lee District Supervisor) Chris Butler challenged us to do 100,” RVFRD President Steve Wright said.
Thanks to donations totaling about $6,000 from 45 households and 13 businesses or organizations, this year’s drive exceeded the goal.
It took just more than two hours for 22 volunteers to assemble the bikes, purchased at discounted prices from the Warrenton Walmart, Mr. Wright said.
“We’re blessed with wonderful people around here,” he said. “Hats off to everybody who contributed and helped.”
The Remington volunteers also will collect toys for Christmas during their annual “Santa Run and Stuff the Ambulance Campaign” from 4 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1.
for the route.
The, the volunteers will host Breakfast with Santa on Sunday, Dec. 8. Each donated new toy will earn a free breakfast.
Later that day, RVFRD volunteers will deliver the bikes and other donated gifts to the Toys for Tots headquarters in Warrenton.
