OKLAHOMA CITY—Santa got a little help from some local residents who are hoping to make many families’ Christmas a little brighter this year.

Hundreds of bicycles were assembled during the “7th Annual Bike Assembly Day” for the “Bucks for Bikes” program, which is sponsored by the Salvation Army.

More than 200 volunteers showed up to lend a hand and put together more than 800 brand new bicycles that will soon head out to deserving homes.

Organizers say the bikes are given to some of the neediest children in Oklahoma County who are participating in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.

D’Anna Pulliam, Bucks for Bikes chairman, said, “You can see all the boxes on the floor. Each box represents a family who has qualified to participate in this year’s program. As soon as these bikes are assembled, they will be labeled with a child’s name who has requested a bike. Then we’ll place the bike at the family’s box to make sure it goes to the right family.”

The Salvation Army is already taking donations for next year’s Bucks for Bikes program.
