There’s no better feeling than giving back to the community, especially during the holiday season. This year, we wanted to spread Christmas cheer by donating 100 bicycles and helmets to less fortunate children.
The bikes were recently given away by PrimeLending volunteers at an annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. Children from charity groups and their families enjoyed holiday songs, cookies, hot cocoa, a fireworks show, and a visit from our very own mascot, Mo the Buffalo.
Nearly $400,000 were awarded to North Texas children’s charities during the event, which was hosted by Speedway Children’s Charities. PrimeLending Chairman and CEO Todd Salmans also accepted the Dick Cerza award on behalf of PrimeLending. The award is given to corporate partners who have made an enduring impact on the charity.
After the 59-foot Douglas fir tree at the event was illuminated with 10,000 LED lights, kids got to take home their brand new set of wheels.
We work together to have a profound and positive impact on the lives of all we serve, and we’re excited to have helped make a difference this Christmas for so many children!
