“Christmas in July” Donated Bicycle Give-Away in Plainfield


Union County Freeholders Linda Carter, Vernell Wright, Alexander Mirabella and Bette Jane Kowalski were on hand to assist Lt. Luke and Sara Barney of the Salvation Army and Donna and Rich Albanese-DeMair, owners of the Dairy Queen in Plainfield, at the annual “Christmas in July” donated bicycle give-away event hosted by the Salvation Army in Plainfield.

They were joined by Union County Traffic Safety Program Coordinator Christine Marcantonio and safety specialist Ron Esposito of AAA Northeast, NJ Division. Mr. Albanese-DeMair refurbished all the bikes making them as-good-as-new. He has refurbished hundreds bikes for local children over several years.
