Davidson “Santa” Gives Needy Kids The Wheels to Roll
One of the most generous Santas around lives in Davidson. How generous? This year Andy Beard and his Spokes Groups charity will need to hire a sleigh that can hold 2,075 bicycles for children with needy families!
It began 24 years ago when Andy responded to the call of the Christmas spirit, packed up a few toys, and delivered them to the Salvation Army. While there, he watched a client jump and leap for joy on receiving a bicycle for her child. Andy remembers thinking, “If the cost of a bike could make somebody that happy, there are a lot of people in this county who have lots of money to buy bikes and make other households happy.”
