Ocean State Job Lot Launches ‘Buy, Give, Get’ Bike Program for Children of Military Families in Need

Program will Provide Huffy Bikes to Children of Military Families Across the Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic

North Kingstown, RI – (May 13, 2024) – Ocean State Job Lot (OSJL), a leading discount retailer with 153 stores across New England and the mid-Atlantic, is pleased to announce a new iteration of its ‘Buy, Give, Get’ program this spring which will provide Huffy bicycles to children of military families in need.

Beginning Tuesday, May 14th, any customer who buys a Huffy children’s bike at any OSJL store for $100.00 and gives it back to the store as a donation, will get a $100.00 Crazy Deal Gift Card for free, to be used for a future purchase at any store.

“Riding a bike is one of life’s simple joys, and for a kid, there is nothing like the freedom a bike affords,” said David Sarlitto, Executive Director, Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation. “We are thrilled to have this opportunity to provide quality Huffy bicycles to children whose parents have sacrificed so much, and we thank our loyal customers for their support in this effort.”

Ocean State Job Lot will work with the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, USA Veterans, and other veteran services to distribute the bikes to military families.

This program supplements OSJL’s traditional summer ‘Buy, Give, Get’ backpack program and its fall ‘Buy, Give, Get’ winter coat program. Since the start of ‘Buy, Give, Get’ in 2016, OSJL has provided over 300,000 coats to veterans in need and 200,000 backpacks to children in need, including those from military families.
