5 Point plans ‘Bikes or Bust’ event

EASLEY — 5 Point Church will be hosting the church’s second annual “Bikes or Bust” on Thursday, Dec. 1, and Friday Dec 2.

Last year, individuals, businesses, fire and police departments in Easley stepped by to rally around this effort and raised 256 bikes.

The church’s goal this year is to raise another 250 bikes to help children in need at Crosswell and East End Elementary schools, as well as The Santa Shoppe at the The Dream Center.

The church will begin broadcasting live at 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, and end at midnight Dec. 2. There will be interviews throughout the weekend with WYFF’s Geoff Hart, former Clemson football player Eric Mac Lain and many more, with Trivia Night on Dec. 1 and a corn hole tournament on Dec. 2.

On Friday night, from 6-9 p.m., there will be a craft fair with more than 25 vendors to choose from to purchase that special Christmas gift for your family or friends.

The church prefers new bikes that are 20 to 24 inches for boys or girls. Monetary donations can be made online at, through giving, by selecting “Bikes or Bust.”
