Semi of Love, Toys for Tots 2021

Make a Donation

Since 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program has been making its mission to collect new & unwrapped toys and distribute them to needy children. Last year, local Toys for Tots efforts benefited over 2,200 kids throughout Des Moines, Lee, Henry, Louisa, and Henderson counties.

We welcome you to join us at Bickel’s Cycling & Fitness and help make a child’s Christmas extra special this year by donating a brand-new bicycle &/or helmet to the 16th Annual Semi of Love toy drive at Westland Mall in West Burlington, IA on Friday, December 3rd & Saturday, December 4th, as well as, Friday, December 10th & Saturday, December 11th at Shottenkirk GM Giant in Fort Madison, IA

Donations will benefit the children of Des Moines, Henry, Lee, Louisa, Henderson, Iowa, and Clark counties of Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri.

Professional Assembly, Free Delivery

All Toys for Tots bicycles are professionally assembled by our veteran team of mechanics and offered at special reduced pricing. For your convenience, these bicycles will be delivered free of charge on Saturday, December 4 & 11, 2021

Cash Donations will also be accepted and combined to make additional purchases and contributions!

*If you miss the Westland Mall Semi of Love drive, Bickel's will make another special delivery to the Burlington Memorial Auditorium on Friday, December 10, 2021*
