DETROIT, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With a tight economy, some families face a Christmas with few or even "no" gifts under their Christmas tree.  Greater Grace Temple, Detroit Lion Jason Jones, Detroit Tigers' mascot PAWS and The Master's Commission are joining forces this Christmas to give away 100 bikes for Christmas. The brand new bikes will be given to children from financially struggling families on Sunday, December 22, 2013.  The giveaway will begin after the 10:00 a.m. service (approx. 12:00 p.m. - 12:30 p.m.).  Families receiving the bikes have already been pre-selected. 

"For many people, one of their fondest childhood memories was receiving a brand new bicycle on Christmas morning," says Greater Grace Temple's Senior Pastor Bishop Charles H. Ellis III. "We want to do something to help those families that have been hit hard by this economy." GGT and The Master's Commission have given out over 2,600 free bikes since the giveaway started in 2004.

Greater Grace Temple is located at 23500 W. Seven Mile Road in Detroit, MI. The Master's Commission is a non-profit arm of Greater Grace Temple. Formed in 1999, The Master's Commission has since become a liaison between the corporate sector and the urban community: guiding corporations in their placement of charitable giving and providing programming that benefits the less fortunate.
