Academy Donates Bikes to Kids

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -Thirty boys and girls were given a very special gift just in time for the holidays. 

Academy Sporting Goods donated thirty bicycles to first and second graders at Martin Park Elementary. The students were selected by their teachers for performing well in class.

Academy managers say the donations are part of a company-wide effort to give back to the community.

"Basically reaching out to the community, just so when they give to us we give back to them, so it's an ongoing thing, Academy's been doing it since we've been open eight years in Alexandria we've been doing it," said Academy Manager Van Descant.  

Academy will donate more than 3,000 bikes throughout the country this December.
