Bikes donated to children in need
Academy Sports + Outdoors and the Florence Sheriff’s Office surprised 30 deserving children with new bikes and helmets as part of Academy’s annual holiday bike donation program. Academy’s 17th annual bike donation program occurred throughout December across Academy's 16-state footprint and benefited over 5,500 children this holiday season.
The donations were made to children through the Sheriff’s Camp Pee Dee Pride. The Sheriff’s Office has worked closely with Academy Sports + Outdoors in the past to help provide deserving children with school supplies and school clothes as well.
Florence County Sheriff Kenney Boone was delighted that Academy Sports + Outdoors was able to help the Sheriff’s Office surprise the children with such a special gift around the holiday season.
Al Bishop, the store director of Academy Sports + Outdoors in Florence, commented that each of the bikes were exactly the same and special edition as well.
The children were all delighted by their new bikes and very thankful to the Sheriff’s Office and Al Bishop and his team.
