Squeals Of Joy! Kids Get Free Bikes (+podcast)

Monday, December 25, 2017

SACRAMENTO Calif. (Air1 Closer Look - Billie Branham) – It’s a Christmas miracle for 1,500 children in the Sacramento area. Destiny Church Rocklin gave away brand new bicycles to kids who may otherwise have had no holiday gifts this year.

The event, called “A Love Our City Christmas” was more than just a bike giveaway. Families were treated to a special day together. The free fun included a clothing boutique, crafts, a ‘Sweets Shoppe’, games, an elf show and food coupons to help parents provide Christmas dinner. The day was designed to help get the young and even not-so-young into the spirit of the season and to serve the neediest in the surrounding communities.

This outreach program, which started 5 years ago, is planned well in advance. The preparation takes almost an entire year. Destiny Church builds relationships with local schools to discover which families may need that little extra help this time of year.
