MARTA gives away bikes to 4,000 children

Posted: Updated:

MARTA gave away toys and bikes to 4,000 Atlanta area children during its Annual Holiday Shop on Wednesday and Thursday.

Each year, MARTA works with the Federation of Charities and United Way to invite area families to select from thousands of holiday gifts.

The shop included toys, bicycles and gift certificates for essential items.

Every year, employees contribute money to ensure that even more children are able to enjoy the holidays.

Community efforts are coordinated by the MARTA Employees' Charity Club which established the Holiday Shop 15 years ago. This year, MARTA employees have pledged $675,000 to support over 400 charities.
