HOLIDAY MADE EXTRA SPECIAL BY PROVIDING NEW BIKES TO CHILDREN IN-NEED

Huntington, New York – Staff and volunteers from Family Service League (FSL), a Long Island non-profit human service agency, will accompany twenty-five children and their families to receive a special early holiday surprise of new bicycles, helmets, and accessories on Sunday, Dec. 8th at The Bicycle Planet in Syosset.  These generous gifts were donated by Bikes for Kids in America, The Bicycle Planet, Massapequa Park Bicycle Club, Huntington Bicycle Club, and Giant Bicycles.  Enrico DeLuca and Craig Cory, co-founders of Bike for Kids in America, and Howard Chung of The Bicycle Planet will be on hand to teach the children how to ride and care for their new shiny bikes. “Family Service League is delighted to have the opportunity to work with Bikes for Kids in America, The Bicycle Planet, and both the Massapequa and Huntington Bike Clubs to coordinate these generous gifts. This thoughtful act has a profound impact by providing the children with the excitement of owning a new bicycle and, more importantly, it reminds the families that they are not alone this holiday season.” said Karen Boorshtein, FSL President and CEO.  “These children are all participants in one of the many programs FSL provides to Long Island community residents.   This unique donation helps us fulfill our mission to help individuals, children, and families to mobilize their strengths and improve the quality of their lives at home, in the workplace and in the community.”
