Tustin, California — On Monday, December 12, 2022, Families and Communities Together (FaCT) hosted a Holiday Bike and Toy Drive Distribution at Tustin Family Campus for 16 FaCT Family Resource Centers (FRCs) in Orange County. Every year, Trish Hurley, Orange County resident, and Sean Canova, owner of Tzoneoc Fitness & Pilates, generously donate bikes to families with children that utilize the FaCT FRCs.
“Sean and I are always so honored to donate bikes to Orange County families during the holiday season,” Trish Hurley said. “We have the best memories of riding our bikes around our communities and having fun outdoors.”
This year, the drive also received donated helmets from the 4Shayj Foundation, an organization focused on helmet safety education for children, based in Indio, California. The organization was Shaun and Ginger Clark founded the organization in May 2015 after the accidental death of their 19-year-old son, Shaun Jr. (also known as ShayJ).
The FaCT team and donors were joined by our Family Resource Center (FRC) staff who chose from the 80 bikes, 42 scooters, helmets, sports balls and toys. All 16 FaCT Family Resource Centers will hold holiday events this month for families in their communities to receive these gifts. To find your local FRC, visit www.factoc.org.
