On Saturday, June 20, the Black McDonald’s Owners Association (BMOA) of Greater Houston will give away 100 bikes at the annual Juneteenth Emancipation Celebrations following the parade. The celebration will start at 11:30am at 2521 Holman St., Live Oak, Houston, TX 77004.
They selected 100 kids from underprivileged areas of Houston to receive the bikes and helmets. In an effort to promote healthy lifestyles and provide fun transportation for the children in the local community, the BMOA worked with the Boys and Girls Club and the Juneteenth organizers to identify the 100 children ages 6-11.
The Houston BMOA includes 14 members representing 42 McDonald’s restaurants in greater Houston. Their mission is to actively support growth of their local communities and the McDonald’ system by focusing on the development of successful black leaders, businesses and community activities.
