Fayetteville charity seeks bicycle donations, money


FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A Fayetteville charity that donates hundreds of bicycles to needy children each Christmas is looking for help.

The Fayetteville Observer reports (http://bit.ly/29ZyiAW) that the Bicycle Man charity will accept donated bicycles and financial contributions at the Walmart Supercenter on Ramsey Street from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

The charity was founded about 25 years ago by the late Moses Mathis. Ann Mathis, his widow, has run it since his death in 2013.

She says the group needs bikes, money and volunteers who can fix bikes. She says one of the two workers who regularly repairs bikes for the organization was recently hurt in an accident and may not be able to return for a while.
