DAYTON, Ohio Dec. 19, 2016 Reynolds and Reynolds associates and their families joined together this holiday season to assemble more than 300 new bicycles to give as Christmas gifts to the families of service members and first responders.
- Dayton: This year's event supported the 88th Aire Base Wing, 338th Recruiting Squadron, and 445th Airlift Wing, stationed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. More than 100 bikes were assembled on Dec. 3. This was the 10th year for the Bike Build in Dayton.
- Houston: Reynolds employees and their family members assembled more than 100 bikes for the children of airmen in the 147th Reconnaissance Wing at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base in Houston. The event was held Dec. 3.
- College Station: On Dec. 10, Reynolds employees and their family members assembled 100 bikes for children of first responders from eight different agencies in the College Station/Bryan, Texas, area.
“The Bike Build is a meaningful tradition that brings together Reynolds associates and their families in service to others,” said Kasi Edwards, vice president of Marketing at Reynolds and Reynolds. “Many of our associates and their families look forward to participating in the event each year. Its one more way for us to give back to our communities and make the season a bit more special for other families.”
Each year, Reynolds purchases, assembles, and donates the bikes for the Bike Build. Reynolds associates and their families assemble the bikes ranging from tricycles for the youngest of riders to 29-inch multi-speed models for teenage children.
Edwards concluded: “Across the company, Reynolds associates have a strong commitment of reaching out to others. The Bike Build is an example of that spirit and our collective appreciation and ongoing support for those who serve.”
Reynolds held its first Bike Build event in 2007. Reynolds families have assembled more than 1,600 bicycles during the Christmas holidays for children of military families and first responders.
