Cheer and Gear/Lexus

Holiday Cheer & Gear, presented by Lexus of Richmond returns to the entrance of Dicks Sporting Goods at Short Pump Town Center this Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Cheer & Gear is an official, Salvation Army Christmas Assistance program created in 2007 to aid an underserved group who benefit from the Salvation Army during the holiday season.

While toys and presents each year are being donated and distributed to young children throughout Greater Richmond – the Salvation Army noted that here was a lack of gifts for boys and girls ages 10 to 16.  Holiday Cheer & Gear was created to focus on collecting new sporting goods to deliver to that neglected group of young boys and girls.

Over the years, hundreds of sports “gear” items have been collected, benefiting local Richmond teenagers, who in the past would not have received any presents on Christmas Day, now have gifts to open along with their younger siblings and parents.
