Phoenix First Assembly, donates thousands of bikes to children in need during each Holiday season. One church member donates all the bikes and they arrive disassembled. This is where Audi North Scottsdale was able to step in and assist.
Mark Reicks, our General Manager, approached the church and offered Audi North Scottsdale's help. What better crew to put together bikes, than a group of trained technicians and dealership employees. Knowing the church had an all-time high of 5,000 bikes to assemble this year, we knew we would need to do all we could to get a jump start on the program to help them out. As a double bonus, we would be assembling them along the pathway to the church during their annual Christmas play, which draws tens of thousands of visitors over the 10 day production. This way, some of the kids who might receive the bikes on a later date, would be able to watch their potentially new bike being assembled right there in front of them.
A crew from Audi North Scottsdale set out to do what we could for the community. We decided to nickname the night "Audi Assist" . As such, we thought it would be fitting to bring our mobile assistance vehicle to the event, and have it on display with the lights flashing. On the side of the vehicle it conveniently says, "Audi Assist". We parked it at the front of the path to where all the bikes were being built, and right next to Mr. and MS. Clause. During the night, Santa began to refer to the car as "his new Sleigh" when kids would ask where his reindeer were. It was a huge hit.
In teams of two, we assembled the bikes for over three hours. Many of the team stayed after the allotted time to help out and get a few more done. Everyone was excited and enthusiastic to help. It was even inspiring to others. The fire department had to come to the church to assist a lady who had some issues during the show. On the way out, they asked what was going on. We explained that Audi North Scottsdale took over the night, and were assisting in assembling bikes as a team. The fireman were so inspired by it, that they're going to get their night shift together and do a bike build as well. They said "If Audi North Scottsdale can sponsor a night, why can't we?"
When the night was over, we assembled over 150 bikes. Just a small dent in the overall number that needed to be done, but a huge impact on those we helped, inspired and touched as a result of the event.
