Target store manager Larry Britton heard of Childhelp co-founders Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson’s plan to give the new bicycles to the children and wanted to get involved. “Christmas is such a special time of year,” says O’Meara. “These children have been through a lot in their young lives and we wanted to help make this holiday season a little brighter for them.”
“We are extremely grateful to Larry and the rest of the Target team for their incredible generosity in helping us purchase new bikes for the children this Christmas season,” added Fedderson.
Helmets for each of the children were donated by a Childhelp chapter member.
