A Christmas giveaway of bicycles to Family and Children's Services has grown ten-times during the last seven years; and Wednesday, crews unloaded three trucks full of bicycles to add to the donations.

Humble Sons Bike Company donated 250 bikes this Christmas, that's up from 25 when Bikes for Tykes started.

That's in addition to the more than 1,200 bikes given away throughout the year.

They also give away a helmet with each bicycle.

"It's a great feeling. Obviously the whole point of doing this is to help kids out, and for kids that might not be getting anything for Christmas, to get a bicycle is a wonderful thing," said Tommy Chavez with Humble Sons Bike Company.

Asbury United Methodist Church also donated 200 brand new coats to Family and Children's Services through the second year of its Project Sugar Coating.
