Bikes for Kids in Valdosta

Cheerful giving has paved the way for 50 children around Valdosta to receive a brand new bicycle for Christmas.

Members of the First Antioch Baptist Church in Valdosta raised enough money to purchase these new bikes.

Friday the bikes were handed out to parents who qualified. Church leaders say giving to disadvantaged families is what the season is really all about.

Benjamin Crawford, church deacon, says, "We feel that God is in the blessing. God wants us to help our fellow man. Those who are unfortunate to have nothing for Christmas, we want to make sure that they have it."

This is the third year that the church has given out the bikes, and they expect their program to continue to grow in the coming years.
