BAE Systems’ employees in Rancho Bernardo raised money for the annual bike
drive through personal contributions and fundraising events. This year,
employees raised enough money to donate 500 new bikes and helmets. Employees
also participated in Operation Homefront’s 2013 Holiday Toy Drive, which
collects donated toys and gift cards to distribute to the families of junior
service members.

“Our nation’s active military and military veterans have made tremendous
sacrifices on our behalf,” said Jordan Becker, vice president and general
manager of Geospatial Intelligence and ISR at BAE Systems. “This effort is
something our employees love to participate in because it benefits the same
men and women of the Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard whom they support and work
with every day.”

Through the annual bike drive, which began in 1995, employees have raised
funds to donate more than 9,000 bicycles for San Diego service members and
their families. In addition to employee donations, Huffy® provided discounts
on the bicycles and tricycles and Bell® offered the helmets at a reduced cost
for the effort.
