Every year since 1989, Sheriff’s Honor Farm inmates have refurbished bikes donated by the community to give to local children.

Local businesses sold the sheriff’s office bicycle replacement parts at cost or donated returned bicycles that need only a small amount of repair.

This year the sheriff’s office partnered with the non-profit Rita’s Rainbows to donate a helmet along with each bike.
