Scouts collect bikes for less fortunate

Posted November 24, 2012

A Girl Scout troop from Fayetteville spent their Saturday collecting bicycles for less fortunate youngsters.

The girls of Troop 1332 spread the word to schoolmates, neighbors and families, then set up shop at Stoney Point Elementary School to accept donations. They got over 50 bikes, and they plan to hold more donation drop-offs through the holiday season.

All bikes will be given to Fayetteville's Bicycle Man Community Outreach Project, and the girls will participate in the Bicycle Man's annual distribution Dec. 21.

    Yeah, the "less fortunate". Any bets on how many of those bikes will end up torn to pieces by the trash about a week or so later?

    I'm not joking- I've seen it too many times. About 1-2 weeks after every christmas, we would cruise the 'hood' and find enough usable parts to rebuild a lot of bikes.
