Fast Lane Auto Repair shared some exciting news yesterday. They purchased a second location to better serve the community. They are also back to organize a bike ride for the benefit of the children of the region.
Every year, many kind-hearted members of the community show up at Christmas Wish with brand new bikes for the kids. Children who deserve a blessing for Christmas. Many children dream of having a bicycle, but we don’t always have the funds to make it happen. We depend on donations. What I have seen in the past two years has been a miracle.
FAST LANE AUTO REPAIR BIKE DRIVE HISTORIC
When Tony Lane and the team at Fast Lane Auto Repair decided to take a bike ride in 2020, I wouldn’t have guessed how successful it would be. Hundreds of local children received bicycles for Christmas, thanks to the generosity of the community. It was amazing to see them arrive at the Christmas Wish Office with a pack of bicycles. And, then show yourself again and again! Due to the pandemic and bike shortages, they even traveled to other areas of the tri-state to find bikes. They also assembled most of the bikes themselves which was amazing.
During the 2021 season, they rode with even more bikes! I can’t wait to see what 2022 will bring thanks to your generosity.
2022 BIKE DRIVE FOR CHRISTMAS VAULT
As the Christmas season approaches, Fast Lane Auto Repair is back to organize a bike ride to benefit local children. Doesn’t every child deserve a bike under Santa’s tree at least once in their life? We say, yes indeed they do.
The 2022 Christmas wish bike drive is underway at Fast Lane Auto Repair at 2121 Triplett St. in Owensboro. You can drop off a new bike or donate money and the team will buy bikes.
“It’s that time of year again! Fast Lane Auto Repair is once again challenging all friends of our customers and other small business owners to join us in this great cause. We collect bikes or cash donations to buy bikes for Christmas. We challenge all of our other small business owners to join us in helping put smiles and more kids’ faces than last year! Thank you all and Merry Christmas.”, Tony Lane shared on social media
