Shottenkirk collecting bicycles to donate to Salvation Army

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Shottenkirk Chevrolet in Quincy has more than just cars sitting on their lot, they have children's bicycles too.

But they aren't selling the bikes, they're donating them.

Shottenkirk off 24th and Locust is collecting any new or used bicycles through Saturday for their "Bikes for Tikes" campaign.

Shottenkirk has collected about 80 bicycles, with a goal of reaching 100 by this weekend.

If you want to donate to the cause, buying a brand new bike isn't necessary.

"Any bicycle if there's rust on it, a little tricycle, anything that you have sitting on your garage that you don't want, drop it off, call us we'll go pick it up if it's in a reasonable distance and we'll fix it up," Tim Schrage, Marketing Representative with Shottenkirk, said.

Schrage says after Shottenkirk employees repair the bicycles they receive, the bikes will then be donated to the Salvation Army on December 19.
