Sheriff’s office hosting Christmas bike giveaway

This program was set up 26 years ago to promote the holiday spirit by giving away refurbished bicycles and new helmets to underprivileged children in San Luis Obispo County. Due to the generosity of the people of this county, the program has continued to be a big success, according to the sheriff’s office.

Currently the honor farm is the assembly point for bicycles that are donated and in need of repair. Inmates who are housed at the honor farm make the repairs. The program instills in the inmates a, “positive work ethic, self-respect and a sense of worth to the community.”

Local businesses have been selling bicycle replacement parts at cost or donating returned bicycles that need only a small amount of repair to the program.

Individuals and businesses who wish to donate children’s bicycles helmets can bring the helmet to any of the Sheriff’s Office Patrol stations or to the Sheriff’s Honor Farm located on Highway 1.

If you would like to make a monetary contribution for the purchase of parts or helmets, please send a check to: Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation Attn: Bicycle Fund P.O. Box 3752 San Luis Obispo, CA 93403

They are no longer accepting adult bicycles and will take only children’s bicycles.

If you know a child in need of a bicycle, e-mail Sergeant Denise Armstrong at: darmstrong@co.slo.ca.us to request a application. All applications are due by Nov. 25.
