In West Palm Beach, Florida, a charity group is doing all they can to deliver bikes to kids in need -- just in time for Christmas.
Staff and volunteers with Jack the Bike Man’s bike charity recently put the finishing touches on 100 refurbished bikes so they could be delivered to students throughout the holiday season.
The group -- led by bike enthusiast Jack Hairston -- has impacted the lives of hundreds of families over the past 10 years. They estimate that, in total, they’ve passed along more than 2,000 free bicycles.
Jack understands that a bike means something very special to these kids. It’s not just a toy. Instead, it means freedom.
And thanks to his vision and hard work, 100 more kids will enjoy that freedom for the first time this Christmas season.
