Brightening the Holidays with Bikes for Kids - group image during build - Parker HannifinMaintaining a long-standing tradition of supporting local charities during the holiday season, Parker operations around the world have collected donations and purchased bikes for less fortunate children since 2006. The “Bikes for Kids” movement began at our Cleveland Headquarters location in close partnership with Toys for Tots, a national charity organization run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve.
