Recently, Darke County Park District and Greenville Wal-Mart manager, Josh Wagner, partnered up to help make holiday wishes come true for local children. Wal-Mart donated gently used bicycles to the Friends of the Darke County Parks Phoenix Committee and they eagerly went to work repairing the bicycles. The Park District contacted the Regional Coordinator for Toys for Tots, Winnie Rader, to ensure that the bicycles will be given to Darke County children for a special surprise this holiday season. “Once again this shows the collaborative efforts that can be made between government agencies, local corporations and non-profit agencies to benefit families in our community,” said Roger Van Frank, Director of the Darke County Park District. 9 bicycles were donated this year.
