Jefferson County Deputies Hand Out Bikes

By  | 

More than 50 children in Jefferson County will get brand new bicycles thanks to folks in the community.

Jefferson County deputies collected donations to purchase new bikes for area kids.

This is the second year for the "Kids and Cop" bike giveaway in the rural community. The shinny new wheels are the perfect present for a group of children who had their gifts stolen right before Christmas.

Loette Rooks said, "They recently been broken into and Estalla's bicycle was stolen, couple of the kids bikes were stolen and they were heartbroken, and this Christmas they don't know that Santa is coming."

Officials say residents not only dug deep in their pockets to make it a bright Christmas for kids, but some donated the wheels as well.
