Cedar Rapids church giving away bikes to local families

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Christmas in July! A Cedar Rapids congregation has been collecting used bikes and getting them back into shape to give to local families.

Volunteers with First Lutheran Church say they hope to have at least 100 bicycles to give away as gifts Saturday. The bikes will be given to children who can't afford bicycles. One volunteer and bike expert says it's important because "times are tough". 

The bikes will be given away between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Saturday at the church which is located at 1000 3rd Avenue SE.
