Holiday Bikes for Ocean Springs Kids

Residents flocked into Kwitzky’s Dugout in Ocean Springs this evening to be the first to make a donation for the third annual Holiday Bikes for Ocean Springs Kids drive.
From now until December 3rd, anyone who stops by Kwitzky’s to make a donation receives the honor of having their name put on the donation board. Each $100 donation goes toward purchasing a bike for a less fortunate student in the Ocean Springs School District.
Those students will be presented with a certificate revealing their special Christmas surprise on the last day of school before winter break.Organizer Tom Wold said, “The first year we started out, we gave away about 80 bikes. The next year we went to 108. This year, we’re going to 125 bikes.”
Anyone who makes a $100 donation is entitled to a steak dinner on December 18th. The bikes will be presented to the students on Saturday, December 19th.
