Muskogee’s Morgan Towing has announced that, with the help of the city’s local business community, the Hooked on Peddling Charity Bike Drive is a complete success. With the help of local school counselors and principals, the company will make more than 50 less-fortunate children happier by donating brand new bicycles to them.
Kevin Faucett, the drivers manager at Morgan Towing and Recovery, came up with the idea after speaking with his son and they realized even though he was getting presents, a lot of less-fortunate families would not be able to give their children the same level of gifts.
With that in mind, Faucett decided to reach out to local business for donations in order to purchase bicycles for six kids at each Muskogee elementary school, three boys and three girls. The bicycles were purchased from the Muskogee Walmart, which also made a monetary donation.
The bicycles will be distributed today and tomorrow.
