Evoke Research and Consulting, LLC, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business headquartered in Arlington, VA is teaming with Spokes, Etc., Alexandria’s premier bicycle and cycling accessory shop, to deliver bicycles to children in need this holiday season.

“The bicycles we build will be donated to the Toys for Tots program sponsored by the United States Marine Corps Reserve. We feel blessed to be working and productive in this challenging economy and would like to give back to the local community.” stated Jason Latona, Program Manager for Evoke Research and Consulting. “We are so happy to be able to support our fellow Marines in this worthy cause, and eager to introduce children to the joy of bicycling in the Virginia area who may not have a chance otherwise."

This is the second annual Evoke/Spokes, Etc. Toys for Tots bike build. Fifteen new bicycles will be assembled by Evoke volunteers and their families with the help of Spokes, Etc. staff at one of the local Spokes, Etc. locations, and then will be delivered to the Marines for distribution.

“Spokes, Etc. is excited to once again partner with Jay Latona and Evoke Research and Consulting to donate high quality children’s bicycles to the Toys for Tots Program,” said Nate Graham, Communications Manager for Spokes, Etc. “Throughout our 27 year history in Northern Virginia, Spokes has always been excited to give back to our community, and Toys for Tots is one of the best known and most respected charity organizations in the country. We are pleased to see this partnership return to benefit children during the holidays.”

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve “Toys-for-Tots Program” is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the local communities in which the campaign is conducted.
