200 Children of Soldiers Receive New Bikes From Reynolds Employees and Their Families

DAYTON, OHIO, and HOUSTON – Dec. 7, 2013 – Reynolds and Reynolds employees and their families convened in their respective offices in Dayton and Houston on Saturday, Dec. 7, to assemble 200 bicycles to give as Christmas gifts to the families of local soldiers. This year’s event marked the 7th annual Reynolds Bike Build.

  • In Dayton, the bicycles were given to children whose parents are serving with the Dayton-based 705th Transportation Company Reserve unit.
  • In Houston, the bicycles were given to children whose parents are serving with the 1st Battalion, 23rd Lone Star Marine Battalion.
     

“The Bike Build is one way for us to recognize local military families and to pay tribute to their service,” said Ron Lamb, president of Reynolds and Reynolds. “As we’ve held the Bike Build year after year, it’s also become a great opportunity for us to involve our families in the spirit of giving and reaching out to others.”

Each year, Reynolds purchases and donates the bikes for the Bike Build. Reynolds employees and their families assemble the bikes – ranging from 12-inch bikes with training wheels to 26-inch multi-speed bicycles. In addition, a number of military personnel from the units receiving the bikes often are on hand to join in the spirit of the Bike Build and help assemble the bikes.

“Every year, we have a terrific turnout of Reynolds families for the Bike Build and being able to interact with the military personnel is one of the highlights,” said Lamb.

At the conclusion of the Bike Builds on Saturday, Reynolds employees and their families helped the soldiers load the bikes into trucks that would deliver them to the units’ respective Christmas parties.

Since launching the Reynolds Bike Build in 2007, Reynolds families have assembled more than 900 new bicycles during the Christmas holidays for children of military members.
