COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – There is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than putting together toys for some deserving children.
Volunteers at Point of Grace Church in Columbus assembled more than a hundred bikes for local kids on Thursday. The children were selected from applications submitted to the church. The bikes are funded by pledges taken throughout the year and church donations. The bikes are given away each year the Sunday before Christmas.
“This our 5th year to give bikes away at Christmas. We were trying to find a way to be able to help families during this time. What child doesn’t want a bicycle?,” says Shane Cruse, volunteer coordinator at Point of Grace Church.
