FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CHARLOTTE, N.C., November 29, 2011- Crumley Roberts, LLP, will be providing bicycle helmets this holiday season to more than 2,000 needy children in Charlotte and Raleigh in partnership with The Spokes Group. The Spokes Group is a 15-year-old children’s charity that provides bicycles to children of needy families for Christmas.

We want to help make it both an exciting and safe experience.”
Bicycles and helmets will be distributed by The Salvation Army’s Christmas Bureau beginning Friday, Dec. 16. Families eligible for holiday assistance who also indicated that they have a child who would like a bike for Christmas will be able to spin a large wheel for the chance to take home a bike.
