Police, firefighters unite with community to deliver bikes this Christmas

 Good News Notes:

“When coordinators for the Lucas County Children Services’ annual holiday toy drive needed help building bikes, the pieces fell into place almost too easily.”

“Mr. Milliken said the agency had previously worked with a Columbus-based nonprofit to supply bikes as holiday gifts for children in its care, which arrived to the agency already built by inmates at the Toledo Correctional Institution. But the nonprofit decided to do a few things different this year, so children’s services was on its own.”

“The Toledo Police Patrolmen’s Association and Toledo Firefighters Local 92 donated a combined $4,200 from their charitable funds to purchase children’s bicycles. Mr. Milliken said the Meijer store in Oregon gave the agency a discount on the bikes while the Jerusalem Township Fire Department stepped up to host the “Badges and Bikes” community bike-build event Sunday”
