WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — The annual Elves and More Bicycle Giveaway event was held in Wyoming on Saturday morning for the first time.
The event was held at Godfrey Lee Middle and High School and nearly 300 volunteers gave out 1,800 bikes to kids living in the neighborhood. It’s the 11th year that the event has taken place, and it normally serves families in Grand Rapids.
Amanda Ramon said that it was a great gift for her kids. “Thank you very much. Our family greatly appreciates it and I know other families out there also do. It’s a great early Christmas present for the kids, that’s for sure, and a very good blessing for the community,” said Ramon.
The organization, Elves and More, aims to bring hope to young kids in a neighborhood each year by giving away the new bicycles.
