The organizations are asking that Memphians donate $300 to the campaign. This would provide a bike, helmet, lights, and a lock to a teen in South Memphis.


“This gift will allow teenagers to travel to-and-from school, work, after-school activities, sports, and work obligations,” Shannon Little, Revolutions, media contact said.


The campaign will officially kick off on Tuesday, but donations will also be accepted any time after that on Revolutions’ website and Facebook page.


The bikes and equipment will be given to teens
