Viking Pest Control, an Anticimex company based in Basking Ridge, N.J., recently incorporated a charity “bike build” into its quarterly team-building event. The bicycles are being donated to deserving families in collaboration with a local Catholic Charities organization.

Viking Pest Control team members, joined by an expert bike mechanic from Lees Bikes, assembled five high-quality bicycles from Bikes for Goodness Sake.

”We believe in giving back to our community in meaningful ways,” Eric Gunner, Viking’s business development manager, said in a news release. “We’re thrilled to have collaborated with Bikes for Goodness Sake and Catholic Charities of Somerset County to provide these bicycles. It’s a rewarding way to make a positive impact and spread happiness.”

“We are incredibly grateful to Viking Pest Control for their dedication to supporting our mission and making a difference in the lives of local families,” Lori Soto, Supervisor III at Catholic Charities of Somerset County, said in the news release. “The bicycles donated through this initiative will provide joy to the children while promoting outdoor activity and strengthening family bonds.”

The five bicycles and helmets will be distributed to families identified by Catholic Charities of Somerset County.
