county bikes for christmas

Gila County’s bicycle program donated 105 bikes to children in low-income families this year. The bikes are salvaged and inmates repair and rebuild the bikes.

An auxiliary branch of Santa’s Elves makes Gila County home and are as dedicated a crew of toy makers as those stationed at the North Pole.

But these Elves wear orange, working year-round to brighten Christmas with new bikes distributed to children in low-income families each December.
